Once in a lifetime experience. This cave system is magnificent and every minute of it is stunning. The sheer magnitude cannot be encompassed by pictures, nor can the beauty. Its a phenomenal trek, and being that it is so limited right now you truly are alone out there (minus the 2 british cave experts, 9 other trekkers, 20ish porters, and vietnamese guides). Oxalis does a phenomenal and extremely professional job and I would 100% tell anyone who is remotely interested to jump on this trek as soon as you can.

According to "Good Morning America," less people have explored this cave than outer space. You could fit an 80 story sky scraper in doline 2, or 2 747 airplanes side by side where the jungle is.

Such a dream. The bucket list item to top them all.

Son Doong Cave can be visited only through a tour organized by Oxalis Adventure Tours. About the company: great service from my first email inquiry through the end of my trip. The behind-the-scene organization that goes into making the cave tours such an amazing experience is fantastic. Wonderful staff all the way around. About the tour: Son Doong Cave was, well, I'm not sure I've found the correct word yet. Incredible, The formations within the cave were beautiful-a work of art in progress. The fun of maneuvering the cave-so nice to have an active vacation. The views. The beautiful scenery on the way there. Such a great experience all the way around!!!!

As a fan of caves this is basically the most spectacular experience I could imagine. It was a HUGE splurge for me financially but so glad I took the financial risk. I couldn't imagine a more memorable way to spend the money.

Loved it on both a giant and small scale - the world's largest stalagmite to incredible small formations at every step.

Oxalis were wonderful. They were wonderful at accommodating vegan and vegetarian diets.

My only regret is I wish I had followed their advice and brought better shoes as is was 5 days of walking on slippery rocks.

I just returned from Vietnam and Son Doong Cave expedition with Oxalis is the highlight of it ! We had to climb ropes, cross endless rivers, get really dirty in mud and walked for hours everyday. However, the scenary and views were so rewarding ! Nothing can compared to this experience. It was like journey to centre of the earth.. Raw and pure gem. Shoes with strong grip is needed to ensure a good grip on the slippery boulders. Be prepared and this will definitely be the trip you will remember for long time.

To reach the cave you must take a boat from the entrance gate and after the boat is pulled over, you must take a very high stairs with a high steps especially near the entrance cave so prepared your stamina. In some place in the cave, there are a few needle holes that you must passed by so if you are a big person, you must be reconsidered it.

Hello, Thanks for your reviews, however i think your reviews is for other caves but not for Son Doong as there is no boat involved from Entrance for Son Doong Expedition.
