Behind this huge rock that we see lies an unexplored world

More than something real, it seems like a pirate's tale, some legend or the Narnia movie come true.. Behind this huge rock that we see hides an unexplored world. It is the entrance to wonders that we usually see in books or movies. 26 years ago, in 1991, a Vietnamese farmer tripped over the mouth of a cave in Phon Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Frightened by the sound coming out of this opening in the rock, he decided to move away from the area. without taking a look.

The sound came from the noise made by the water that was inside. The local people called this place Son Doong, but nevertheless they did not investigate it or dare to walk through the entrance. It was not until 2009 when a group of British scientists, led by Howard Limbert, managed to find the cave again and decided to explore its mysteries. After daring to finally venture inside, what they found left them completely shocked. From the very entrance to the last rock it is an incredible site.

All this time this rock had been hiding an autonomous world of its own, with its own landscape and even its own microclimate. With 5 kilometers long and almost 150 meters wide this is the largest cave on the planet. It has its own flora and fauna, various lakes and natural formations, and even its own cloud system..
