Through a National Geographic project titled “Son Doong 360” aiming to preserve the cave in digital form, wanderlusts are able to explore the world’s largest natural cave with their computers or smartphones.
A trek, created from 360-degree images and atmospheric sound effects, heads through light-filled caverns, passing a 70 metre-tall stalagmite, and huge sinkhole jungles.
According to the newspaper, viewers are advised to “take advantage of the high definition images to zoom into details of the cave’s geology, flora and fauna”.
Son Doong cave, which is said to be the world's largest, is located in the heart of the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the central province of Quang Binh.
It was named on the list of the seven new wonders of the world for 2020 by prestigious travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler.
The cave, which has a large, fast-flowing underground river inside, was discovered by local resident Ho Khanh in 1991./.
