Nguyen Van Ninh, a local person from Phuc Trach Commune in Bo Trach District, informed the board that he discovered a new cave on September 30, while looking for honey in Cha Noi forest within the national park, about a two-hour walk from Ho Chi Minh Highway.

According to Ninh's description, the entrance to the cave is more than 2m high and 3m wide. It takes about 25 minutes to walk from the entrance to the end of the cave. The inside of the cave is divided into three sections, with several large and primitive stalactites.

"The dimensions of the cave are pretty small in comparison with other caves in the national park," Le Thanh Tinh, Director of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, said. "We will consult cave expert Howard Limbert from the British Caving Association and conduct an investigation soon to verify the information."
