Dozens of new caves found in Phong Nha-Ke Bang national park

Additional 44 caves have been discovered in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in the central province of Quang Binh, raising the total caves found so far in this area to 405.

The Park's Science and International Cooperation Office said it is necessary to conduct an in-depth study to better understand values of newly-found caves for sustainable preservation and exploitation. Dubbed the Kingdom of Caves, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park was declared a World Natural Heritage by UNESCO twice in 2003 and 2015 thanks to its impressive scenery and archeological value. It is also home to Son Doong cave, which is recognised as the largest of its kind in the world.
