It is like walking into the pages of Jules Verne’s classic, Journey to the Center of the Earth. But this is not in some author’s imagination or Hollywood director’s script. The Son Doong Cave is one of the most astounding places on Earth, and we did not know about it until about four years ago.

This place is an adventurous nature photographer’s dream.

The newly discovered Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is the biggest cave in the world. It is over 5.5 miles long, has a jungle and river. Don’t forget that it is tall enough and to fit a 40-story skyscraper within its walls. And it is all underground!
