Experts will return in the next few days to measure and create a 3D map of this cave.

The Krong No volcanic cave system, about 10km long, is the largest, longest, and most unique of its kind in Southeast Asia. It was discovered and publicised in 2014.

Scientists have also found vestiges of prehistoric humans dating 6,000 - 7000 years ago there. These traces were announced in September 2018.

Earlier, similar traces had only been recorded in a volcanic cave system in the Republic of Korea.
