Any report claiming that a cable car system will be built through the world’s largest cave Son Doong in the north-central Vietnamese province of Quang Binh is groundless, the provincial tourism department has asserted.
News has been circulated recently that a realty developer has conducted field study inside the cave, located in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, for the cable car construction, raising concern among conservationists.
“Such information is ill-founded,” Ho An Phong, director of the Quang Binh tourism department, confirmed to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.
To date, the Quang Binh administration has issued no in-principle plan or approval to such a construction, Phong underlined.
He added that if a certain individual or organization is really conducing field study to build cable car inside Son Doong, it is still “something very normal.”
