Son Goong translates to mountain river cave. It was created 2-5 million years ago by river water eroding away the limestone underneath the mountain.

It was found in 1991 by a local farmer, but the first people who actually explored the cave were British experts in 2009.

The cave has also rare pearls that are formed when water laden with minerals dripping from a cave’s ceiling, falls too quickly to form a stalagmite. Instead, the dripping water forms a small ball of mineral deposits that grows into a small mineral pearl.
