Son Doong cave is the world's largest cave but hard to reach in so Quang Binh Province plan to build a US$212 million cable car system inside.

The local resort which is received the green light to build this system is Resort Developer Sun Group.

This system if completed will be 10.6 kilometers long. This route will start in Tien Son cave and go through openings of Son Doong, which has about 150 individual caves.

After one-year tourism program to test the waters, 243 adventure travelers from 34 countries explored the cave on six-day trips that cost each of them $3,000.
