Son Doong, the world’s largest cave

Son Doong, the world’s largest cave located  in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park opened to the public in 2013!  As soon as I heard about the discovery of this monstrosity that sports jungles, rivers and diverse wildlife in 2009 I knew it had to be on my bucket list.   Well, I’m ecstatic to report that I just made my first payment towards a July excursion which means its really happening!vietnamcave_13I have some smaller adventures that will come to pass in the coming months (although nothing compares to Son Doong!)  I hope to visit Japan and will be doing plenty of hiking in South Korea’s National Parks, I’m excited to photograph cherry blossom festivals wherever I can.  Not to mention the other surprises that are sure to come with my new job.  I can’t wait to share the experience through my camera and narratives with all of you!

The 8 day excursion into Son Doong will test my endurance and give me something to train for.  I’ll probably take up biking in hopes of a future Taiwanese adventure and will get back to my fencing club soon.  Any ideas on how else I could best prepare?

Wow, I just googled this cave. I wish I could afford to tour it. I know they are trying to preserve it and limit tourism, but $3K is just so steep. If you do this, enjoy every second of it. It should be one of the wonders of the world! Oh, and take tons of pictures and post them on your blog! 🙂

Yeah I can’t wait. Started saving up for it as soon as it was discovered a few years ago. I’ll definitely post tons of pictures!
