(WTNH)– There are breathtaking photos and a video of inside the world’s largest known cave that was captured by a photographer who used a drone to take us through Hang Son Doong.

In January, 31-year-old photographer Ryan Deboodt used a drone to capture amazing footage of the immense Son Doong cave, located in Vietnam.

“It’s incredibly difficult to put into words how amazing Hang Son Doong really is. From the shear size of the cave to the two doline where plant life has started growing inside the cave. It is truly otherworldly and something that probably can’t be experienced anywhere else in the world,” Deboodt wrote on his website.

The cave is 5.5 miles long, 650 ft. wide and 500 ft tall. Inside you’ll find rocky cliffs, a jungle, and misty clouds that seemingly create the cave’s own weather system.

Oxalis Adventure Tours  holds expeditions through Son Doong. They describe Son Doong as “a cave that can fit a 747 flying through its largest cavern, a foreign landscape, with enormous stalagmites and statuesque stalactites, hanging from the ceiling and rising from the ground like an alien species.”

Deboodt credits the Oxalis Adventure Tours for giving him the opportunity to do photography work in the cave.

To take a journey through the cave, check out this video below taken from the drone and check out more photos of inside the cave here.
