    Hang Sơn Đoòng được đánh giá là một bức tranh “hoành tráng, đẹp đến mức kinh ngạc” với nhiều thạch nhũ có hình thù kỳ lạ, có điểm chứa cả rừng cây nguyên sinh đang phát triển.

    Hang này nằm trong quần thể hang động Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng. Nó là một phần của hệ thống ngầm nối với hơn 150 động khác ở Việt Nam tọa lạc gần biên giới với Lào

    Hang có chiều rộng 200 mét, cao hơn 150 mét, dài ít nhất là 6,5 km. Chiều dài có thể còn sâu hơn nữa, tuy nhiên do điều kiện kỹ thuật giới hạn, các nhà thám hiểm thuộc Hiệp hội Hang động Hoàng gia Anh không thể đi hết chiều sâu của hang để xác định hang dài bao nhiêu.

    Với kích thước như thế, hang Sơn Đoòng đã vượt qua hang Deer ở Vườn quốc gia Gunung Mulu của Malaysia (với chiều cao 100 m, rộng 90 m, dài 2 km) để chiếm vị trí hang động tự nhiên lớn nhất thế giới.

    Ngoài ra ở một số đoạn hang Sơn Đoòng còn có kích thước lớn tới 140 m x 140 m, trong đó có các cột nhũ đá cao tới 14 m. Một bức ảnh lộng lẫy do nhiếp ảnh gia Carsten Peter chụp vào tháng 5 năm 2010 ghi nhận đoạn hang có bề rộng khoảng 91,44 m, vòm hang cao gần 243,84 m - có thể chứa lọt một tòa nhà cao 40 tầng của thành phố New York.

    Trong hang các nhà nghiên cứu còn tìm thấy một dòng sông ngầm dài 2,5 km và có cả những cột nhũ đá cao tới 70 m.

    Hang Sơn Đoòng là hang động tự nhiên lớn nhất thế giới. Hang nằm trong quần thể hang động Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng. Hang là một phần của hệ thống ngầm nối với hơn 150 động khác ở Việt Nam tọa lạc gần biên giới với Lào!
    Phái đoàn Hiệp hội Hang động Hoàng gia Anh do Howard Limbirt dẫn đầu đã công bố việc phát hiện hang và cho rằng quy mô của hang Sơn Đoòng quả thực là lớn nhất thế giới.
    Hồ Khánh ( người đặt cho hang cái tên Hang Sơn Đoòng) là người dân địa phương đã phát hiện ra hang này. Ông cũng là người dẫn đường cho đoàn thám hiểm Hoàng gia Anh tới Hang.
    Hang Sơn Đoòng được hình thành khoảng 2-5 triệu năm trước, khi nước sông chảy ngang qua vùng đá vôi đã bị vùi lấp dọc theo một đường đứt gãy. Dòng nước làm soi mòn và nạo ra một đường hầm khổng lồ trong lòng đất dưới dãy núi. Tại những nơi đá mềm, phần trần sụp xuống tạo thành những lỗ hổng, lâu ngày thành vòm hang khổng lồ.[8]
    Hang có chiều rộng 200 mét, cao hơn 150 mét, dài ít nhất là 6,5 km.[4] Chiều dài có thể còn sâu hơn nữa, tuy nhiên do điều kiện kỹ thuật giới hạn, các nhà thám hiểm thuộc Hiệp hội Hang động Hoàng gia Anh không thể đi hết chiều sâu của hang để xác định hang dài bao nhiêu.
    Với kích thước như thế, hang Sơn Đoòng đã vượt qua hang Deer ở Vườn quốc gia Gunung Mulu của Malaysia (với chiều cao 100 m, rộng 90 m, dài 2 km) để chiếm vị trí là hang động tự nhiên lớn nhất thế giới.[9][10]
    Ngoài ra ở một số đoạn hang Sơn Đoòng còn có kích thước lớn tới 140 m x 140 m, trong đó có các cột nhũ đá cao tới 14 m.

  • Ha Long Bay - Vietnam Tour - Vietnam Visa to Ha Long Bay

    10:03

    Halong Bay is one of Mother Earth's most amazing natural wonders and one of Vietnam's most prized treasures. A comfortable 3 hours drive from Hanoi, Halong Bay is in Northeastern Vietnam on the shores of the Gulf of Tonkin. The bay is dominated by more than 1,600 limestone karsts and islets which rise out of the waters of the bay to heights of up to 100 meters (330 feet) and the numerous caves and grottos spread throughout the bay. Abundant scenic beauty, archeological and geological significance, cultural and historical connections, fresh seafood and proximity to international gateways make Halong Bay one of Vietnam's most popular places to visit.
    Natural Features

    Islands and Karsts

    The most outstanding feature of Halong Bay and undoubtedly its greatest attraction are the 1,696 islands, islets and rocky karst outcrops. 989 of these islets and rocky outcrops have been been given imaginative names by the locals over the years. These have been derived from their perceived shapes and include names such as Man's Head, Fighting Cocks, Wading Ox and Wallowing Buffalo.

    With heights ranging from 50-100 meters (160-330 feet) and a height-to-width ratio of about 6:1, the majority of these karst pinnacles and islets have sheer, vertical cliffs. They are uninhabited and unaffected by human activities. The pure size and numbers of these outcrops provide a stunning contrast and backdrop to the turquoise waters of the bay when viewed from sea level.

    Caves and Grottos

    Another exceptional geological feature of Halong Bay is the number of limestone islands which have caves and grottoes within them. The total number of caves has never been determined and there are almost certainly more which are yet to be discovered. In order to preserve the natural state and integrity of the large number of caves and grottos in the World Heritage Area, only some are open to visitors. The most commonly visited are Thien Cung (Heavenly Palace) cave, Dau Go (Wood Tip) grotto, Sung Sot (Surprise) cave and Trinh Nu (Virgin) grotto.

    The shapes and formations on the sides and rooves of the caves, many now being part of local folklore and legends, bear witness to the different stages of formation over the ages. Some cave features, such as calcified shell-beds, are the direct result of ancient human activity.

    Sea and Lakes

    The lower chambers of some caves and grottos are below sea level. Due to the porous nature of limestone, these chambers are often partially filled to form tidal lakes and pools. Although most of these are shallow, the depths of some have never been determined. The geomorphology of Halong Bay indicates that it is almost certain that there are undiscovered and fully entombed lakes within many of the islands. Dau Be (Goat's Head island) alone has 6 different tidal lakes.

    The sea in Halong Bay is generally less than 10 meters (33 feet) deep and boasts a rich biodiversity of about 1,000 species of marine animals. Over 160 species of coral have been identified. Coral reefs make up 30% of the seabed and in some areas as much as 80% of the seabed is covered in coral reefs. Most coral reefs are at a depth of 4-6 meters.
