Son Doong Cave

Surrounded by virgin nature of Phong Nha National park in central Vietnam, Son Doong Cave was found by a jungle man Mr. Ho Khanh before a full exploration from
the British Cave Research Association was conducted in 2009/2010. 

The Cave is now claimed as the largest cave in the world and has drawn remarkably the attention of many film companies including the BBC, National Geographic, Japanese and Brazilian teams. It also featured in National Geographic Magazine in 2011.

son doong cave

Son Doong cave is unlike any other caves on the planet. Inside this giant cave are two huge daylight windows which allows the light to enter many parts of the cave. At the base of these windows are large jungles which use the available light and so trees up to 30m tall are present. But Son Doong is not only about its immense size, the cave has amazing examples of some of the best speleothems in the world. Giant stalagmites up to 80m high and enormous rimstone pools are present throughout the cave. There are also excellent examples of giant cave pearls and a newly discovered side passage is full of large fossils over 300 million years old. As well as rare species of plants in the cave a number of new species of animals have recently been discovered. Monkeys, hornbills and flying foxes have all been seen in the jungle section of the caves.

There are not so many travel agencies who are allowed to operator tours and adventures in the area to make sure the less impact on nature. Pleased be advised that Son Dong cave should be best explored from February to the end of August. During the period of September till January, there is flood inside the cave, no trip is allowed to be operated during this time.
