This month’s issue of National Geographic Magazine features an absolutely stunning look inside some newly discovered massive caves in Vietnam — some large enough to hold an entire New York City block of 40-story buildings! Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“The trail disappears before me into a difficult pile of breakdown—building-size blocks of stone that have fallen from the ceiling and crashed onto the cave floor. I crane my head back, but the immensity of the cave douses my headlamp’s tiny light, as if I were staring up into a starless night sky. I’ve been told I’m inside a space large enough to park a 747, but I have no way to know; the darkness is like a sleeping bag pulled over my head.”
