The locale is the largest known cave in the world, and its interior might not be what you’d expect. Instead of appearing dark and rocky, Hang Son Doong (translation: mountain river cave) is a lush, jungle-like world with an underground river. It’s a fascinating natural splendor and made even more incredible as Deboodt’s drone pans the grandios
