  • ATV stops running this tour. We strongly suggest the similar one to Hang En Cave - The 2nd largest cave in Vietnam and the 3rd over the world

    Son Dong, a cave belongs to the Phong Nha-Ke Bang grotto system in central Quang Binh Province, has been discovered to be the biggest in the world.

    Son Doong cave, discovered by a local 18 years ago, is more than 200 meters wide, 150 meters high, and at least 6.5 kilometers long, though the explorers said they were unable to explore it fully. British explorers have recently discovered that So Dong is much larger than the world’s biggest known cave.
