The People’s Committee of Quang Binh Province have voted to rescind their application for Son Doong Cave to be recognized as a world’s largest cave, citing the associated fees as excessive.

According to a spokesperson, the Committee received an email from the World Records Unions requesting fees of US$9,200 to complete the process, which fee proposal was rejected out of hand.

The spokesperson said the Son Doong Cave has already received recognition as the largest cave around the globe by The World Guinness Organization and from a cost/benefit perspective didn’t see the value in the additional designation.

Particularly, in light of the fact that the adventure tours to Son Doong Cave have already been fully booked for next few years.
