A World-Class Destination
Son Doong cave is almost 9km long and in some locations, the height of the cave ceiling is up to 200m, 160m wide, large enough to accommodate a neighborhood in New York with 40-story buildings. With a volume of about 38.5 million cubic meters, Son Doong surpasses Deer Cave in Malaysia, becoming the largest natural cave in the world. The cave’s stalactites and stalagmites are up to 80m in height and are also considered to be the tallest that experts have ever seen. Inside that magnificent space is a segregated ecosystem consisting of underground rivers and virgin forests, whose climatic conditions are distinctively different from those on the outside. Therefore, it is not a surprise that more and more international tourists are coming to Vietnam to conquer Son Doong, one of the 7 New Wonders of the World in 2020, as voted by the prestigious travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler.
Son Doong has been repeatedly mentioned in newspapers and world-famous media: voted by the New York Times to rank 8/52 most tourist-worthy spots in 2014, the Telegraph (UK) voted it as one of "11 amazing places discovered surprisingly recently", CNBC (USA) voted it to be the top "7 less-known destinations to consider when it’s safe to travel again"; Son Doong exploratory tour was rated by CNN as one of "7 of Vietnam’s best cave experiences".
A place to remember
With more than 25km of forest roads, the Son Doong expedition tour will take visitors through rough stretches of road, climb steep slopes up to 400m in height, and wade through underground rivers. Participating in the 9km cave exploration tour includes climbing with ropes and crossing the Great Wall of Vietnam at 90m in height with ladders and safety belts.
Visitors to Son Doong see for themselves “the forgotten universe that could not be found anywhere else in the world.” You will remember Son Doong forever after standing on the "Wedding Cake", getting overwhelmed by the unreal scenes of Vong Khung Long, along with the Great Wall of Vietnam and many other spots. The mystery and wonder have made this place an ideal destination, a journey to remember for everyone.
