Just wanted to post this link -

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/07/photogalleries/worlds-biggest-cave-pictures/index.html

How long until the Vietnamese, Vietnamese this place - which right now has to be own of the most spectacular places on earth.

Can't wait to hear a tour guide tell me that during the American War the NVA and Viet Cong used the place as a regular hide-out - they just forgot to tell the world.

anhluc, thanks for the info

I went to look at wiki and this is what they had to say (note the reference to Champa steles, and obviously the [then] knowledge).
