31km-long cave discovered in central Vietnam

The Thien Duong Cave in Bo Trach District in Quang Binh Province has recently been found to be 31km long, a new record for the country.

After carefully studying data on the cave, a report was released announcing the new findings, stated Dr. Howard Limbert, from the British Royal Cave Research Association, on May 23. It is likely to be the longest dry cave in Asia, said Libert.

First found in 2005, Thien Duong Cave is within the Phong Nha-Ke Bang park’s conservation area. The cave, 191m above sea level, has the most beautiful and spectacular stalactites in the park. Despite the robust geological tectonic process, the whole of the cave’s structure has been preserved intact.

At that time, the explorers only discovered about 5km of the cave due to technical factors, then on their return, they discovered the remaining 26km section.

The explorers also came across a number of small creatures in the newly found section, but the species have yet to be classified and their presence in the cave is unusual. The cave is well ventilated and is expected to be an attractive tourist destination in the near future thanks to its beautiful limestone formations. (Source: VNA)
