(March 19, 2015) – It’s the world’s largest cave, and a photographer is giving the world an unprecedented view.

Photographer Ryan Deboodt used a GoPro and DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter to capture this dramatic footage of Hang Son Doong in Vietnam. The images are breathtaking and otherworldly.

According to NPR, the cave’s volume is measured at 38.5 million cubic meters. One large passage extends for about three miles and is about 656 feet high and over 574 feet wide in certain spots.

The cave has “skylights” that let in light, allowing trees and wildlife to thrive. Deboodt has been chronicling his journey through the cave on Facebook.
