Phong Nha Cave was first “discovered” in 1899. In 1992 a group of British scientist joined the Hanoi University on a expedition inside the cave. With the mission to fully explore the cave and document it. Between the 18th of march and the 18th of April several expedition were organized and the group had successfully discovered 7,729 meters of cave with a maximum height of 50 meters and a maximum depth of 83 meters. This expedition and documentation was the reason for opening it up for tourism in 1995.
Not long after the opening of the Phong Nha Cave to the public a artificial lighting system was installed in 1998. However, in 2012 the current president of the company changed the lighting which helped reduce the damage to the cave and create incredibly beautiful ambiance.
