Located in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Vietnam's Quang Binh province, Hang Son Doong is one of the most captivating destinations that can be experienced in Southeast Asia.
After our first expedition to Vietnam, our team had explored a number of caves in many provinces. On our second expedition, I chose to return only to Quang Binh for the whole expedition. This proved to be a very good decision because we discovered some of the world’s finest caves and especially river caves.
Twelve new caves where humans have never set foot in were recently discovered in the central province of Quang Binh by experts from the British Cave Research Association.
