UN­DER­GROUND EXPLORATIONS : VIET­NAM

World Travel Magazine - - Inspire Me -

The largest cave pas­sage in the world gained in­ter­na­tional renown af­ter Howard Lim­bert, a caver from the British Cave Re­search As­so­ci­a­tion, sur­veyed it in April 2009. The Son Doong cave, in Phong Nhake Bàng Na­tional Park, Viet­nam is about 9km long, and con­tains some of the tallest sta­lag­mites in the world, up to 70m tall. Son Doong is also home to a large jun­gle, and a pas­sage­way lead­ing to 300 mil­lion-year-old fossils. Just over 224 visi­tors are al­lowed per year, so prior reser­va­tions and en­quiries are a must. Pho­to­graph by Alek­san­dra H. Kos­sowska
