A group of British cave explorers have confirmed they discovered seven new caves in the central province of Quang Binh one week into their expedition set to last until next month, the Sai Gon Tiep Thi newspaper reported.

Howard Limbert of the British Cave Research Association (BCRA) said the caves were found during their expedition in the limestone areas of Phong Nha-Ke Bang. 

The team said some of the caves had magnificent stalactites like ones in the Thien Duong Cave, labeled the world's most beautiful and magnificent cave when it was discovered in Quang Binh in 2005 by BCRA explorers.

The length and width of the caves are still being measured.

During their trip, the team said they could not get back to a cave that is more than 100 meters deep that has strong currents flowing.
