Largest Cave Ever Found in Vietnam

The largest single cave "Son Doong" was just found in the Vietnamese jungle measuring close to 120 x 120 meters in some areas. Explorers can walk close to 3 miles before being stopped by the flooding water.

The team that explored the cave found an underwater river system along with the usual stalagmites associated with limestone caves.

"The terrain in that area of Vietnam is very difficult," said expedition team member Spillane.

"The cave is very far out of the way. It's totally covered in jungle, and you can't see anything on Google Earth," he added, referring to the free 3-D globe software. Read the Full Story of Son Doong cave on National Geographic
