Vietnam Cave Films
« on: June 17, 2018, 06:33:42 pm »
Hi everyone,

New to the board but know several people here fairly well. I just finished several films from the large caves located in Phong Nha-Ke Bang NP in central Vietnam and it was recommended I post them here. Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions.

Hang Son Doong:


Tu Lan:


Hang Va:


Thanks,
Ryan

Stunning footage, thanks for sharing! :thumbsup:

Just don't let the Mendip cave police catch you with that drone. Or were you filming from a helicopter? The caves certainly looked big enough for it!  :o

Mendip cave police would definitely have had a fit if they'd seen what happened to Ryan's drone... :lol:

caving in Vietnam requires a permit - getting a permit requires being on an organised tour. Around Phong Nha (where Son Doong and Hang En - and plenty of others are), there are two main companies that you can do tours with - Oxalis and Jungle Boss. Check out their respective websites for available tours and prices.

£2,300 with Oxalis for Son Doong. More than a day trip hence the higher cost.
