Son Doong is the world’s largest cave, created 2–5 million years ago. A half-mile block of 40-story buildings could fit inside it!
The park is in full bloom during spring and tourists often visit to see 4.5 million “baby blue-eyes” flowers blossom.
The cave lies beneath the Mendenhall Glacier and it melts as you walk through it.
The tabletop mountains are considered some of the oldest geological formations on Earth, dating back to roughly 2 billion years ago. The mountain also serves as a triple border for Brazil, Guyana, and Venezuela.

This 355-foot waterfall lies at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is the widest waterfall in Africa. There’s also a famous feature on the Zambian side called the Devil’s Pool, which allows adventurous tourists to hang out at the edge of the falls.
Trolltunga is a piece of rock that hangs out of the mountain about 2,000 feet up in the air. The Troll’s Tongue (translation in English) is available to hikers from mid-June to about mid-September.
This beach is known for its beautiful white sands, which are believed to have been brought to the beach from sea currents over millions of years. The sand is very fine and does not retain heat, making it comfortable for a barefoot walk along the shore. It can also damage electronics, so keep your cell phones and cameras in a safe place!
This magnificent beauty is 277 miles long and 18 miles wide, and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
