The Largest Cave On The Planet

Recommended Posts

The world's largest cave has recently been opened for public tours - who wants to go? ;)

 

"The Son Doong cave is the world’s largest cave and is located in Quang Binh province in Vietnam. The entrance to the cave was originally found by a local Vietnamese man named Ho Khanh in 1991 but the first people to actually go insde were a team of British cavers, led by Howard Limbert in 2009.

 

Appropriately the name “Son Doong” means “Mountain River” since it was created 2-5 million years ago by river water eroding slowly away at the limestone underneath the mountain. The impressive entryway was created when the ceiling collapsed creating those huge skylights.

 

It’s over 5.5 miles long, and even has a jungle and a river inside of it! It’s so large that you could fit a 40-story skyscraper within its walls."
