Only 1,000 people are allowed to visit the world's largest cave each year due to environmental concerns.

Provincial authorities only allow tours to the cave between January and August, and the cave is closed the other months to allow its ecosystem to recover.

On the expedition, tourists can explore the cave together with a specialist, traverse unique underground rainforests, wade through rivers both above and below ground, and scale the 90-meter "Great Wall of Vietnam" at the end of the cave with ropes and ladders.

The tour price also includes airport pick-up, two nights' stay at a hotel, three meals a day, and snacks.

Each tour party has a maximum of only 10 guests but 30 people are needed to serve them - 22 porters who carry their luggage and also food for the four-day trip, five safety assistants, an international guide, a cave expert, two chefs, and a ranger.

All 1,000 slots for 2022 are booked while around 100 people, mostly foreigners, have already booked for 2023.
