In central Vietnam you can find the world’s largest known cave. The cave is active with wildlife and can be found in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. The save was first discovered in 1990 by a local farmer named Ho Khanh. The cave houses an impressive ecosystem and the park does tours for those seeking adventure, however it’s worth noting that the journey can be rather difficult.
- Water drips from a gaping scar in the ceiling over 100 meters above us. A spectacular sunbeam starts to creep down the side of the serrated cliffs.
- More people have stood on the summit of Mount Everest than have witnessed the surreal beauty inside these enormous chambers.
- They began the exploration of the cave, and in 2010 determined it to be the largest ever discovered in terms of the size of its cross-section.
“Limiting the tour to only one operator has protected the cave from mass development. Only 10 customers per departure are permitted. Tours run once per week between February to August per year.”
