World’s Biggest Cave Found in Vietnam

British explorers discovered  a cave  in a remote Vietnamese jungle.  Hang Son Doong is a part of a network of about 150 caves in central Vietnam.   The cavern pictured below is big enough to accommodate a New York City block of skyscrapers.  The cave is in the Annamite Mountains and contains a river, a jungle and its own thin cloud system.  These pictures left me in awe and took my breath away.  Photos Courtesy of National Geographic.  The article in their magazine that came out in January 2011 goes into much more detail and I highly recommend reading it.  It’s all so fascinating.  This is definitely on my list of places to visit.
