IMG_4858

This park, which has one of the longest underground rivers in the world at 8.2 kilometers, is described by the UNESCO World Heritage website as encompassing “one of the world’s most impressive cave systems, featuring spectacular limestone karst landscapes, pristine natural beauty, and intact old-growth forests and distinctive wildlife.”
The water is also crystal-clear, and the cave formations are majestic. For travel blogger Jherson Jaya, the river tour was quiet and sacred.
