Phong Nha-Ke Ban National Park, Vietnam. Caves 088


Phong Nha-Ke Ban National Park, in Vietnam is home to some of the world’s most extensive cave systems. Slender motorboats ferry visitors a few miles along the river and into the namesake cave of the park – Phong Nha Cave. Unlike the cave we visited at Halong Bay, Phong Nha feels active and alive, and the formations are both huge and spectacular.

Although not yet open to the public, a new cave system found at Phong Nha in 1991 by a local man is the world’s largest as documented by a team of Vietnamese and English cavers.

Son Doong is five times larger than the huge Phong Nha cave with a chamber that is over five kilometers in length, 200 meters high and 150 meters wide. This makes Son Doong the world’s largest cave, surpassing in size “Deer Cave” in Malaysia.
