New on 500px : World’s biggest cave by john13 by john13

Megan gazes up to a sky hole in Hang Son Doong, Vietnam. The opening is more than 100 meters higher than the unique spiral stalagmite she is standing on. The cave walls here are sheer cliffs and there is no way out. The light and rain entering the hole in the cave ceiling fosters growth of low-light plants, ferns and moss.

New on 500px : Cave of Dreams by andrewcooneyphoto by andrewcooneyphoto

I’ve spent more times hear than any other location, waiting for all elements to come together. They finally did with this cracker Sunrise a few Months back. This cave is tiny and even when laying down, your still just a few inches from hitting your head. The shot is totally worth it, however 🙂

New on 500px : Another level by john13 by john13

Inside Hang Son Doong, the world’s biggest cave, the size of the caverns is on another level. Without a caver for scale it is hard to portray just how gigantic the cave is. This image looks back towards a sunbeam filtering through the cave mist into a karst window called “Watch out for Dinosaurs”, a comment called out to the first caver to ever climb into this primeval-looking chamber.
