If you want to get sucked into what appears to be another dimension, then this place may just be your cup of tea. According to The Huffington Post on Sept 9, the world’s largest cave called Son Doong in Vietnam is expected to be giving public tours starting next year.
What is so special about this unique place? This 5.5 mile long cave has a whole jungle and a river running through it. It is said to be able to fit a 40-story building in it. The tour company called Oxalis will be offering a six-day tour starting next year, but you better make sure that you are prepared for an adventure.
This humongous attraction is nothing like anyone has ever seen before. Its huge walls contain lush greenery that seemed to come about after the roof caved in centuries ago. This has allowed natural sunlight to sneak in to grow a tropical forest inside the cave. There are even recently discovered plant species down there. It is truly a thing of beauty!
You can also find a spectacular waterfall that plummets down into a flowing river in the world’s largest cave. While on tour, you may even see a few monkeys and flying foxes zooming around the jungle. It is unspoiled as of right now, but this time next year will be a different story.
The entrance was discovered back in 1991 by a local. However, he never went in to discover what was down there. In 2009, a couple of British explorers chose to discover what no man has seen before.
If you are interested in next year’s tour, remember that you will have to take the plunge and rappel 80 meters down to enter this wondrous place. Oh, and you will also have to come up with $3000 to do it. They are limiting to 220 tourists for this once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
Do you think a tour is a good thing for Son Dooing?
