This newly discovered cave was found by husband and wife cavers. This may be the worlds largest! It is located in Annimite Moutains and within it contains a river, it's own thin clouds and a jungle. It is completely out of sight. This cave is big enough in places to accomodate a New York city block of skyscrapers! This is amazing! I wonder what types of uknown animals they will discover.

Son Doong (Mountain River Cave) was first discovered in 1991 by a local, but wasn't publicly revealed until explorations could take place in 2009, the documentary i suggested is the result of the first expeditions.

I doubt it will be open for public inspection any time in the next 5 years, more expeditions are planned with other local and international study groups. The main thing being that you aren't able to even enter the cave system without a experienced knowledge of abseiling/rock climbing.

I would say that after some more studies are under taken that the local tourism industry would boom over being able to put some kind of infrastructure into the cave to allow people to take a tour, big draw card considering it is now officially the worlds biggest.

The biggest chamber of Son Doong is over five kilometers in length, 200 meters high and 150 meters wide.

Easily enough space to house 6 or more statues of liberty standing in a line.

Is it really officially the worlds biggest? Someone posted that they had found the end to the cave. I believe that Mammoth Caves in Kentucky are the largest in the world and have not even been fully explored. I could be wrong.

And you always get shot down when you mention hollow earth theory?
How?....can hollow earth be ruled out?

Star for this~!!

Judging the distance from the bottom to the top and reading some of the text, this is a near true defination of hollow~! This is probably the only cave I've seen or heard of that is this huge.. I've seen the NatGeo channel on cable that was showing the crystal caves.. but that is miniscule complared to this~!

the only thing is, where does all the lava come from ?? Is it perhaps a layer of lava between certain layers of earth ?? that would make logical sense (if hollow is proven to be true) instead of having a ball of lava at the center ....

Is this cave above sea level? I thought Vietnam was a swampy, coastal nation. Why doesn"t this cave fill up with water? The amount of water involved is easy to comprehend when you look at the scope of the chamber. Now picture that water flowing into the Earth. Where does it go?

Nice post. Wanna go there?
Ha....I'm up for exploring and discovering new sites and areas.
Big into alien and government conspiracies.
Wanna message me madam?

I heard a lot about tunnels and caves in Vietnam I wonder if it's the remnants of a military bunker

Not really a bunker so to speak, during the Vietnam war the VC used thousands of combined kilometers worth of small 2'x4' tunnels.. imagine the jungles over there with thousands of different tracks and their combat tunnels are literally a mirror of that below.. they would have command bunkers, munitions bunkers, hospital bunkers, comms bunkers all tied into this infrastructure.. they engineered trap doors everywhere, and became a legend so to speak among the Americans, who in turn teamed up with the Australians to form the tunnel rats who took flame throwers and explosives and hand guns and knives and took on the VC face to face in their own domain. these days the tunnels are considered a big tourist draw card with many different areas now repaired and preserved by locals

They were hand dug and supported their need, at the largest maybe a tiny foot print compared to this mamoth cave that has never been inhabited by any significant people, i.e. wartime infrastructure

It would be ironic for them to find dinosaurs and stuff like in journey to the center of the earth lol. That would be awesome. Just my opinion.

There wouldn't be clouds in there buddy, maybe fog/mist what have you but no clouds as you see when you look up into the sky

Interesting story and as plexus stated, you could write stories. I had not heard anything about the miners seeing weird things like reptilian humans and was unable to find anything on the matter, could you elaborate?

That cave is absolutely beautiful. The Earth is my favorite artist.

Wow, excellent find OP!
It's this kind of discovery that really gets my mind wondering what else is yet to be uncovered. It's kind of why we're all on this site: We want to know. S&F

nice pictures. good found!

It´s always a suprise to me how many places on earth aren´t explored yet.
I think there´s still a lot to discover...

Wow...that is amazing!!! I like hearing reports like this mostly because we as human beings feel like we have over turned every stone the earth has to offer but this is just more proof that its quite the contrary.
