Inside Hang Son Doong, the world's largest caves in Vietnam

May 22, 2015

At more than 200m high, 150m wide and 5km long, the Hang Son Doong cave in Vietnam is so big it has its own river, jungle and climate. Australian photographer John Spies, 59, spent a week photographing the natural wonder of the cave system. "With ceilings towering over 200 metres high in places, the cave is a humbling and belittling experience," said John, who has lived in Thailand since 1977 and runs the Cave Lodge guesthouse.

The comparable brevity of this report prompts me to add a little more..........the caves in Vietnam are second to none, there are several that run for seemingly endless kilometres taking you at times right across to Laos, there are several into which the Empire State building will easily fit.

If you visit any one of these marvels of nature you'll tralsie, without any shadow of a doubt that whatever cave you visited before, it no longer counts. Those of Vietnam in particular the one mentioned in this article - the largest cave ever found in the world - are more than breathtaking.
