The hang Sơn Đoòng, or the Mountain River cave, is currently believed to be the largest known cave in the entire world.
Located near the Vietnam–Laos border, the cave was discovered by coincidence by a local man in 1991. It wasn’t until 2009, however, that a team of British scientists surveyed the cave and found it to be almost six miles long and almost 500 feet deep. The cave is believed to be between two and five million years old.
In the beautiful video and these stunning images, you can truly appreciate the sheer beauty and tranquility of this place, which has been shielded from the outside world for so long.
Wow, wow wow wow. Hang Son Doong did not disappoint. We had some absolutely epic sun beams in the first doline. Can't wait to share more from this great trip by now it's off to bed as tomorrow brings more jungle as caves. #ic_adventures #petzlgram #camp4pix #meetthemoment #neverstopexploring @petzl_official @ic_adventures
It’s amazing how tiny and insignificant the cave explorers look compared to the vastness of the natural wonder. The coolest part is that Deboodt said he almost didn’t even bring the drone in with him. A team of scientists and explorers had been observing the flood tendencies of the Sơn Đoòng Cave, and apparently the drone was a last-minute packing decision.
Now, thanks to Deboodt and his unbelievable visual accounts, we can all explore the world’s largest cave right alongside him.
Spelunking has never been so easy thanks to this jaw-dropping images from inside hang Sơn Đoòng, the world’s largest cave.
