In 1991, a farmer discovered this extraordinary kingdom while exploring the cave located in the Phon Nha-ke Bag National Park in Vietnam. He was amazed to find water flowing at the entrance of cave.
When this island inside the cave was exposed to the locals, they named it Son Doong meaning mountain river cave. It is an outstanding underground island known to very few people.
The cave can accommodate a full city chunk of 40-story buildings to fit inside it. You need to descend nearly 262 feet from the ground using a rope to enter the cave.
This fast flowing river eroded the ceiling of the cave and formed wide opening called dolines.
The cave was explored in 2009 by Howard Limbert and British researchers.
It's because this abandoned cave is inhabited by an underground island making it the most amazing cave in the world.
The cave pearls resemble just like baseballs which are formed due to the water falling from the hollow ceiling and line sections of the cave floor.
Son Doong island has lush greenery and amazing rocks.
The forest of Son Doong is inhabited by monkeys, birds and rats.
