In this video, photographer Carsten Peter takes us along with him on a journey into Son Doong, the world's largest cave located in Vietnam. The biggest chamber in the cave is over 3 miles long and more than four times taller than the Statue of Liberty.

He said ‘I've been a photographer and explorer for the last 35 years and I've visited so many caves, I've lost count. But this is by far one of the most unique and unusual caves I have ever seen.’. 

The photographs are simply amazing and can be viewed on the website ‘message to’ You can appreciate them more at a larger size, although they are still cosmic in the video. The post is called “Amazing journey to the world’s largest cave that has a jungle and waterfalls deep inside.’

What I found amazing is that the plants grow on the rocks and the rocks grow towards the light in the huge cave. The biologist did not find any different flora there; but he did find that the flora grew differently. It is a video that is well worth 25 minutes of time to watch; and Carsten has a very pleasant voice to listen to.
