Beijing-based mostly photographer Ryan Deboodt (beforehand) not too long ago returned from a visit to Laos the place he spent two days exploring Tham Khoun Xe, one of many largest lively rivers caves on the planet. Stretching almost four.5 miles (7km) underground, the cave system is awfully distant and Deboodt was permitted to photograph and movie past the place vacationers are usually allowed to go to. The immensity of the subterranean area is staggering, with a median ceiling of virtually 200 ft (60m) and width of 250 ft (76m) it’s hardly conceivable an area like this might exist underground.
Deboodt introduced an arsenal of digicam and video tools in addition to a drone to seize the expansive interiors of Tham Khoun Xe, a lot of which he edited right into a brief video included under. You possibly can observe extra of his cave images from world wide on Fb or Instagram, and browse an interview in regards to the endeavor on Smithsonian.
