Your Own Batcave

Spend the night in Vietnam's Son Doong, the world's largest cave

Full_son_doong

So there’s this campsite in Vietnam.

 
It’s got a jungle called the Garden of Edam. Three million year-old fossils. Some flying foxes.
 
Oh, and it’s inside a cave.
 
Grab your gear for Son Doong, the world’s largest cave that’s hiding the world’s largest underground jungle and your new spot for some rugged badassery, now hosting overnight guests.
 
It’ll be you, a caving crew and the more adventurous pals in your pack on this private 7-day excursion into the Vietnamese underworld.
 
You’ll slide heist-style down a cool 262 feet via rope the only way in — and make your way to the cave’s main and largest passage. And by large we mean a half-mile block of 40-story buildings could fit in there.
 
There’ll be underground rivers to traverse, 600-foot cliffs to scale and if the doline collects enough rain, maybe a waterfall.

When night falls (not that you’d really know), you’ll pitch a tent in the jungle and fall asleep to the sounds of monkeys, hornbills, and those foxes with wings. 
 
Bruce Wayne, eat your heart out.
