Son Doong Cave is in the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province. Just recently explored in 2009-2010 by the British Cave Research Association, the cave has only been open to the public for a year. Be some of the first still in the world to see this spectacular place with a journey deep into the jungle and into the abyss on our out-of-this-world Son Doong Cave Expedition.
Imagine trekking straight into the depths of the world’s largest cave on an expedition unlike any other.A cave that can fit a 747 flying through its largest cavern. A space where you truly don’t believe it’s possible that you are still on this earth at all. Foreign landscape, enormous stalacmites and statuesque stalactites, hanging from the ceiling and rising from the ground like an alien species. A jungle within a cave, that’s almost so unreal that you have to see it to believe it. Misty clouds enveloping the whole scene, evidence of the cave’s own weather system. Fossil passageways that give proof of the cave’s ancient existence.
As you approach the jungle just outside the entrance, the rush of cool wind that cascades out brings to life everything inside of you. It’s misty, cold and exhilarating; it’s apparent that there’s something magical waiting just beyond the entrance to the cave.
The entrance to the cave was originally found by a local jungle man, Mr. Ho Khanh, in 1990, and then Howard and Deb Limbert of the BCRA led the first discovery expedition into the cave in 2009. Son Doong Cave is now distinguished as the largest cave in the world and has understandably been the attention of many film companies such as the BBC, National Geographic, and many more. It was also prominently featured in National Geographic Magazine in 2011.
