Flying Inside the World's Largest Cave

July 27, 2015

Photographer Ryan Deboodt uses drone to capture stunning images of Hang Son Doong cave
Hang Son Doong in Vietnam is the world’s largest cave — one chamber is more than 3 miles long, 660 feet high and 490 feet wide. But just calling Hang Son Doong a cave almost does it a disservice. With its own river, microclimate and jungle, Hang Son Doong is more than a cave; it’s a world unto itself.

Comprehending the massiveness of Hang Son Doong is incredibly difficult, but this footage of the cave, taken, in part, with a DJI Phantom 2, is a good place to start. Photographer Ryan Deboodt and a team of explorers spent 10 hours meandering through the cave to collect footage for this six-minute video, which is worth all 379 seconds.

The video clip was filmed at three different locations within Hang Son Doong: the entrance of the cave, and two dolines — sinkholes that formed natural skylights. You can see from the video that plant life thrives in these dolines. Near the end of the clip, his Phantom hovers high above the cave to give you a great perspective of a doline’s mouth from above ground
