International tourists know Son Doong by the name of Mountain Cave (River Mountain Cave). The cave is said to have been formed by the Rao Thuong River eroding into the foothills of the Truong Son limestone mountains. After the merging of mountains and rivers, a large tunnel was formed beneath the cliffs.
