A massive cave recently uncovered in a remote Vietnamese jungle is the largest single cave passage yet found, a new survey shows.


At 262-by-262 feet (80-by-80 meters) in most places, the Son Doong cave beats out the previous world-record holder, Deer Cave in the Malaysian section of the island of Borneo.

The joint British-Vietnamese Caving
Expedition 2009 was conducted over
five days in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Ke
Bang National Park in mid-April 2009.

Adam Spillane, a member of the
British caving team was quoted as
saying, “It is a truly amazing sized
cave and one of the most significant
discoveries by a British caving team.”
