Tours To The Son Doong Cave In Vietnam

The entrance to the Son Doong Cave in Vietnam was discovered by a local man in 1991. The impressive 300 feet rugged drop down scared him and withheld him from exploring it.

For many more years the cave kept its secrets until 2009 when two British cavers took the challenge, descended, and were baffled when they discovered the largest cave in the world.

The Government of the Vietnamese Province where the cave is located has given the exclusive tour rights to Oxalis for 2013 and the first quarter of 2014. The expectation is that after that the official opening of the Son Doong will take place.

Only 220 tourists will be allowed to visit the cave in 2014 and the tours for the first quarter are already booked. That leaves only the months of April through August. No tours will take place after those months due to safety reasons, because the risk of flooding in the area is too great.

Touring the cave is not for the squeamish. You have to be in good physical as well as financial shape, since the costs are $3,000 per person. You will get your money's worth though and can look forward to an entire week of adventure, awesome explorations, and jaw-dropping discoveries.

What all you can expect for your money will follow soon. Read it carefully before you decide to join one of the tours, because you really have to be fit and in a tip-top physical condition. If it is a fit then you better hurry and lock in your spot!
