The super cave, called the Miao Room, is one of the largest underground chambers in the world and fits four Great Pyramids of Giza inside it.

As well as this, it equates to a whopping 22 football fields within the cave.

It is the second largest cave when measured in surface area, being beaten by Sarawak Chamber in Malaysia.

When it is measured in volume, it is a staggering 380.7 million cubic feet and measures 1.27 million feet.

It is believed the cave was sculpted 100 million years ago, in which layers of rock formed while water flowed through a shaft.

The mapping of the geography only finished in 2013 after British explorers funded by the National Geographic Society revealed the size of it.

Scientists used 3D laser scanners to measure the time the light takes to reflect back to estimate the size of the cave.

The cave debris found throughout could help to understand how it grows, while other information allows scientists to learn more about climate change.

However, the Great Pyramid of Giza is still a larger structure despite four of them fitting into the vast cavern.

The Pyramids themselves have remained a mystery over time and why they were made in the shape they were.
