Hang Son Doong photo article

What is quite interesting is how so many things seem to require a statistical comparison that at first sight appears impressive, but on reflection is actually less so.

On reflection Everest seems quite popular and well visited compared to many great caves.

In the case of Han Son Doong and having had the permit system in place for some time now the actual visitor numbers may well be far higher than the 800 quoted.

Either way there are likely to be a lot of well known caves that have had far fewer visitors than that.

If the trips to Vietnam remain as popular as they are currently it may even become of the most frequented.
Maybe then the stats could be turned round - Even more popular than.........

Just a thought, plus the photo's are great and didn't need a corny stat to accompany them
