World’s Largest Cave- Son Doong Cave, Vietnam

This picture is not edited in any way. It is taken inside the “Son Doong Cave”- Earth’s largest cave known in existence. The cave is more than 200 meters high, 150 meters wide and reaches over 5 kilometers. The cave has only recently been explored by a British-Vietnamese expedition team that was led by a local farmer, who had discovered the entrance. The team found an underground river running through the first 1.6 miles (2.5 kilometers) of the limestone cavern, as well as giant stalagmites more than 230 feet (70 meters) high.

The team was told that local people had known of the cave for some time but were too scared to go inside. “It has a very loud draft and you can hear the river from the cave entrance, so it is very noisy and intimidating,” said caver Adam Spillane, a member of the British Cave Research Association expedition. Andy Eavis, of the International Union of Speleology, added that there are almost certainly even bigger cave passages awaiting discovery around the world.

Pretty bizarre how we can still discover bizarre and mysterious places like this right?
