The new cave has been named Hang Thung and adds an additional 1.6 million cu m in volume to Son Doong, which now measures 38.5 million cu m.

    Discovered by a local man in 1991, Son Doong Cave was first explored in 2009 by the British Cave Research Association and has been open to the public since 2013. Geologists say the cave formed 2 to 5 million years ago and is roughly 6.5 km long, 200 meters high, and 150 meters wide. It is officially recognized as the world largest cave by the World Record Association and WorldKings.
