Watch: Drone Footage Inside Vietnam’s Hang Son Doong

March 16, 2015 / Vietnam, Asia

Get a new perspective on Vietnam’s Hang Son Doong, the largest cave in the world, with the help of a GoPro equipped drone.

Produced by Ryan Deboodt, with assistance of the Oxalis Adventure Company who manages tours to the cave, the video was filmed near the entrance and the first and second dolines (skylights) which are 2.5 and 3.5 kilometers (1.5 and 2.1 miles) inside the cave.

Located in the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Vietnam’s Quang Binh province, Hang Son Doong, although first found by a local in 1991, was only explored in 2009 by a team of British cavers.

They found its largest chamber to be more than 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) long, 200 metres (660 feet) high and 150 metres (490 feet) wide, far surpassing Malaysia’s Deer Cave, the previous champion.
