    World's Largest Cave, Son Doong, Prepping For First Public Tours

    World's Largest Cave, Son Doong, Prepping For First Public Tours

    The Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is the biggest cave in the world. It's over 5.5 miles long, has a jungle and river, and could fit a 40-story skyscraper within its walls.

    But nobody knew any of that until four years ago.

    Son Doong was first discovered by a local man, Ho Khanh, in 1990. Taking shelter from a storm at the base of a huge cliff in the heart of the jungle, he found a deep hole at the base of the rock that was emitting wind and even puffs of cloud. He didn’t explore further, and its location was forgotten for 19 years until he rediscovered the entrance and led Limbert and his team of divers to it. The cave is open to Vietnam visitors, but access is strictly controlled and limited to 1000 a year.
