Condé Nast Traveler said “Caves typically conjure images of spelunking horror movies, or fairy-tale baddies. But in reality, the structures are among some of the most stunning, untouched geological formations on the planet - just look at the vibrant red rocks of Antelope Valley, the glittering ice caverns of Iceland’s glaciers, or the underground grottos of Southeast Asia, replete with sacred monuments. They may not be easily accessible, but that just makes the most beautiful caves in the world all the more alluring to witness.”

The list of 15 most beautiful caves in the world of Condé Nast Traveler consists of Benagil Sea Cave, Portugal; Vatnajökull Glacier Ice Cave, Iceland; Antelope Canyon, U.S; Phraya Nakhon Cave, Thailand; Marble Caves, Chile; Son Doong Cave, Viet Nam; Uplistsikhe Cave Complex, Georgia; Fingal’s Cave, Scotland; Ajanta Caves, India; Reed Flute Cave, China; Cueva Ventana, Puerto Rico; Valdez Glacier Caves, U.S; Devetashka Cave, Bulgaria; Škocjan Caves, Slovenia; and Frozen Lake Baikal, Siberia.

Son Doong Cave located in Son Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh Province is considered as the largest natural cave in the world with 200m in height, 200m in width, at least 8.5km in length. The cave was first found in 1991 by Ho Khanh, a local man and explored and published by a group of scientists from British Cave Research Association in 2009.
