A live feed from inside Hang En (Swift Cave) will allow many viewers in the US to see, for the very first time, the beauty of the caves deep in a remote jungle.

The program will air on ABC at 6 a.m. Eastern Time in the US, which is 6 p.m. on Wednesday in Vietnam.

The cave, which goes through a mountain for 1,645 meters, has been named one of the most captivating caves on earth by National Geographic. It is a feeder to Son Doong, named the world’s largest cave thanks to British explorer Howard Limbert team’s excavations, following a local man’s discovery.
