In the Vietnamese national park Phon Nha-Ke Bang, there sits a cave the likes of which have only ever been seen in fiction novels.
The cave, mostly unexplored for all of evolutionary history, was first explored in 2009 when British experts when on a voyage for the ages. They found the cave having it's ecosystem of wildlife, rivers/lakes, and climate. Most, if not all, caves ever explored by modern man have proven to have been previously inhabited by earlier colonies. This cave has no signs of previous inhabitations. The cave is a sight to behold, with its waterfalls, lakes, rivers, and formations naturally shaped by running water for thousands of years. The pictures are breathtaking and its easy to see why people all over the world have become awe-inspired at the Son Doong cave. Located on the border of Laos and Vietnam, it's the largest cave known to man.
The cave is roughly 87 miles long and could fit just about any man-made structure. Skyscrapers, shopping malls, amusement parks are just a few examples of what fit inside this cave. You can even take a tour of the cave if you have $2300 to spare and a week to spend doing it. The location of the cave makes the trek quite an undertaking, and thus there are very few tours given each year. If you have the money, it would certainly be a once-in-a-lifetime trip. There are new species of plants, complete rainforests, and animals alike that found their way into the cave. One can only wonder if the hidden world of Atlantis would be like this place, quite possibly as wonderful and grand. THE MAGICAL SON DOONG CAVE IS WORTH A TRIP There are certainly other large caves in the world, but none nearly as magical and complete as the Son Doong.
Son Goong means ”mountain-river-cave” and crafts from two too five million years ago. But for a long time it was undiscovered. It was first find 1991 by a local farmer, but the first people who explored the cave was brittish experts in 2009.
There are guided tours to get here. The tour can take seven days and the cost is around $2300 (1500 brittish pound). For that price you w
ill also spend five nights camping inside the cave.
The cave is also rich in rare pearls that has been shaped for centuries by water drops that’s been dried and shaped a layer of lime on the sand.
