Explorers entering a cave in Vietnam

Hang En Cave, Vietnam

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Going underground, expedition members enter Hang En, a cave tunneled out by the Rao Thuong River. Dwindling to a series of ponds during the dry months, the river can rise almost 300 feet (91 meters) during the flood season, covering the rocks where cavers stand.
