The story of the Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is incredible on a couple of levels. First, it’s a 5.5 mile long cave that features a river and a jungle, and the ceiling soars so high in spots you could fit a skyscraper inside of it. That alone is amazing. Follow that link and take a look at the rest of the pictures. It’s incredible.
But what really fascinates me is that the cave was only discovered in 1991. And it wasn’t explored until 2009. That’s crazy! Now that the cave has been mapped and explored, Oxalis is going to be offering a six day tour. If you want to get in on it though, you had better hurry. There are only 220 permits available for 2014.
