Absolutely incredible. I can only imagine the what it must be like going into something like that "where no man has gone before" and exploring. Very cool and some stunning photography.

Not to one up you but heres the "largest" discovered cave in the world. Just came across it today. Even has its own jungle and river, located in Vietnam. Just started prepping for tours. The cave in China looks massive though, I wonder if the Vietnam one will hold up as the "largest"
