Caption: 'Jellyfish' cave formation in Lang's Cave, Mulu National Park, Sarawa, Malaysia. Set in Gunung Mulu (Mt. Mulu), a sandstone mountain that is surrounded by limestone upheavals that are riddled with huge caves, which are believed to be some of the largest caves in the world. These include Sarawak Chamber, considered to be the world's largest and capable of containing up to 40 Boeing 747 aircraft and Deer Cave, which could hold up to five cathedrals the size of St Paul's in London. The caves began to form roughly five million years ago and this process is still continuing today, resulting in spectacular cave formations as seen here.
