Paradise Caves, Vietnam.
If anyone has not seen the january edition of National Geographic, you should. Mark Jenkins and renowned photographer Carsten Peters visit the newly discovered Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park caves in central north Vietnam. The largest cave accessible to man at this date, there are a long windy network stretching as far as 200km in some parts.
In February, the crew of “Where 2 Next?“, a pilot television series about no-destination traveling, stopped in at Paradise Caves, part of the new Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park cave system that just opened to the public on December 24th, 2010. It was magical. Barely anyone there, we were of course, too rushed for time, and trying to take it all in was almost a futile effort. Besides the principal photography for the show I managed to shoot off a few stills to try to capture a rough perspective of the scale and beauty of this cave. Definitely a highlight of our trip for me, the Paradise Caves were unlike anything I have ever seen before in my life.
