The team, made up of explorers from the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand, found 20 caves in Lam Hoa commune, Tuyen Hoa district, and Hoa Phuc and Hoa Son communes, Minh Hoa district, after three weeks of work. In addition, two caves were also found in Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park.

The newly discovered caves are mostly wet caves with beautiful formations, and although small, they are quite interesting compared to many caves previously found in Quang Binh. While Son Doong, En Cave, and many other caves only have one main entrance, this new cave system has many different directions in and out. Furthermore, some caves are connected, creating many horizontal paths for exploration.

The discovery of these new caves will contribute to enriching the tourism products in Quang Binh province, as there are many promising caves for visitors to explore and experience. The province is already known for its spectacular karst cave systems, with Son Doong cave being the largest in the world. The discovery of these new caves highlights the province's potential for adventure tourism and the need for continued exploration and preservation efforts. With this new discovery, Quang Binh will become more attractive to tourists who are looking for new and exciting destinations to visit, and it opens up new opportunities for the development of adventure tourism in the province.
