Hang Son Doong in Vietnam is the largest cave on Earth. Located near the border between Laos and Vietnam, this behemoth is approximately 9km (5.6 miles) long and contains its own large, flowing river.

The largest chamber in this single cave runs for 5km (3.1 miles), is 200m (656ft) high and 150m (492ft) wide, and contains some of the tallest stalagmites in the world – up to 70m tall (229ft).
