Amazing cave

The Son Doong Cave in Vietnam’s Quang Binh Province is said to be 5.5 miles long, 650ft wide, and 500ft tall.

Australian photographer John Spies, 59, spent a week photographing the natural wonder of the cave system. “With ceilings towering over 200 metres high in places, the cave is a humbling and belittling experience,” said John, who has lived in Thailand since 1977 and runs the Cave Lodge guesthouse.

Inside the Son Doong cave

The cave was created 2 – 5 million years ago by river water eroding limestone underneath a mountain.

“The entrance is quite small and mist from the cave, caused by the cooler air inside meeting the hot air outside, rises into the surrounding forest. Visitors must descend 80m down a steep wall with the use of harnesses and ropes. The huge temperature difference also creates moving clouds of mist, especially near the two karst windows, which gives the cave its magically surreal atmosphere.”

“It is amazing to be 3-4km inside the cave and have daylight illuminate the cave formations. The dimensions of the cave are incredible and to camp for five nights in the biggest cave in the world is not something most of get to do in our lifetime,” said John.
