Largest Cave in Vietnam to be Featured in New 3D Film
This past Sunday a 12 member crew of Japanese filmmakers from Kyodo News arrived in the central Vietnam to film a documentary about Han Son Doong, the largest cave in the country and home to the largest passage in the world. The passage is a staggering 4.6 km (2.9 miles) long and 80 meters (260 feet) high, with sections over 140 meters (460 feet) high and wide for part of its length.
The crew, guided by Ho Khanh the person who actually found the cave back in 1991 and cavers from the British Cave Research Association who first explored the cave in April 2009, will shoot the 3D documentary featuring the creatures who call the cave home and the forest that surrounds it.
The shoot wraps up on May 23rd. Once completed the film is expected to be broadcast later this year in more than 160 countries & territories.
This isn’t the first time Son Doong has been featured on television. In March 2010, a National Geographic team visited the cave on a 20 day expedition. The product of that visit is included below in 3 parts.
