A team of explorers of the British Royal Cave Research Association led by Dr. Howard Limbert on Thursday said that they have discovered a cave which is more beautiful than the exquisite Son Doong Cave in the central province of Quang Binh.

Son Doong Cave has been recognised as the biggest cave in the world by National Geographic.

The new cave is called Va Cave and is located among a group of eight other caves. The team of explorers discovered it after a study and research of the site in the province. The British Royal Cave Research Association has so far discovered 15 new caves.

Among them, Va Cave is said to have stalactites that are even more stunning and spectacular than those in the Son Doong Cave.

The explorers said that they had never seen a cave with such beautiful stalactites, as much as 1.7kilometres in length.

According to initial reports, the Va Cave was found by a local man named Ho Khanh, who took the explorers to the site of the cave, located 400metres from the Son Doong Cave.
