Quang Binh plans to launch experimental adventure tours of Son DoongCave, which is considered the largest in the world, in early August thisyear.
The tours were suggested by Howard Limbert, an expert of the British Cave Research Association (BCRA).
As scheduled, the trial tours will be held twice a month with theparticipation of a group of only 7 tourists and 15 local guides.
After a trial time, the tours will operate officially from February to August every year.
Son Doong cave was first discovered in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park by a local man named Ho Khanh in 1991.
The cave was then made known publicly in 2009 by a group of Britishscientists from BCRA, led by Howard Limbert, following their surveyingtrip in Phong Nha-Ke Bang Park.
Limbert said the cave is five times larger than the nearby Phong Nha cave, previously considered to be the largest in Vietnam.
Son Doong cave has a length of at least 6.5 kilometres. It isestimated to be 200 metres in width and 150 metres in height. Thelargest chamber of the cave is judged to be 250 metres in height.
Scientists have also discovered a great number of stalactites inastonishingly extraordinary shapes and also primitive forests in thecave.
