The World’s Largest Cave

By Linda Tancs

Spelunkers, take note.  Beginning this year, there’s a new cave to explore in Vietnam’s Quang Binh province.  Known as the Son Doong, it was fully explored for the first time in 2009 despite being discovered in 1991.  Over five miles long and nearly 500 feet high at its peak, the passage is the world’s largest known cavern, a title previously held by Deer Cave in the Malaysian section of the island of Borneo.
