Son Doong: among the world’s most impressive caves

January 15, 2014 0 COMMENT

The American Business Insider Magazine has recognised Vietnam’s Son Doong cave system as one of the world’s 12 most impressive.

According to the magazine, Son Doong cave is actually the longest natural cave system thus far known. Underground rivers eroding limestone deposits formed the cave approximately 2 to 5 million years ago.
