Tours to world’s largest cave suspended

Authorities in central Quang Binh province have suspended tours to Son Doong, the world’s largest cave, starting September 1. This date marks the end of a year-long pilot program by Oxalis, a private tour company which was licensed by Quang Binh authorities to carry out professional tours in the cave. So far, 243 tourists have explored Son Doong. Nguyen Chau A, director of Oxalis, has said that the company will seek approval to continue the tours in future, though no date has been chosen yet.
