Information on building cable system to Son Doong Cave is false
(National Times)- Quang Binh Province hasn’t issued any official documents on the construction of the cable system to Son Doong Cave.
In an interview with the National Times, Dang Dong Ha, Deputy Director of Quang Binh Department of Tourism denied the rumor that has been spreading on the Internet, about the construction of a cable system to Son Doong Cave.
According to a piece of information circulated on the social network Facebook recently, Quang Binh Province has approved the project of building the cable system to Son Doong. The investor has also been chosen and the construction will start very soon.
“That information is not true. At present, we haven’t issued any official documents on the construction of the cable system to Son Doong Cave,” Ha told The National Times.

Two years ago, Quang Binh permitted an investment group to carry out initial researching steps, preparing to set up a project on building the cable system to Son Doong Cave. The distance from the cave’s main entrance to the nearest cable station is estimated as approx. 300 meters. However, the project was terminated due to the heavily controversial responses.
Earlier, Vietnamese’s digital daily news Vnexpress quoted Nguyen Van Ky, another deputy director of Quang Binh Department of Tourism saying that, the province had only called for investment on the construction of the cable system in an area of Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park.
However, Ha refused to give any comments on his colleague’s statement.
