In addition to the discovery of these new caves, the exploration team also found scientific-related evidence about different underground water flow in such caves as Huong Hoa or Khe Rung. These priceless evidences would be particularly beneficial for the scientific research in geology, geomorphology as well as biodiversity in Phong Nha –Ke Bang National Park. Especially, there are some caves that possess beauty values with stalactites, underground water flow, sandy beaches and cliffs. As a result, they are highly valued as the potential ones for creating more Vietnam tours joined by both domestic and international travelers. Despite being ideal adventurous places for travelers with great potential, explorers also strongly emphasize that it would be very necessary to maintain balance of natural landscape without being spoiled by human beings.
