The film crew has to bring a large quantity of equipment into the cave.

The film crew had to work very hard to live introduce splendid and gigantic beauty of caves deep in a remote jungle from inside Hang En (Swift Cave) to international viewers.

It was the first live feed from the Southeast Asian country for Good Morning America, the number one morning show in the US.
