- Duration:1 day
- Destinations: Paradise cave and Dark cave
Dark cave is amazing and the true experience, kayaking over the river to get there, walking through the dark with only the head touch on your mining helmet, having a mud fight in the mud baths deep in the cave and then washing clean with a swim in the lake inside the cave.
Paradise Cave (Hang Thien Duong ) discovered by scientists of the British Caving Research Association in 2005, has the length of 31km, the longest dry cave in Asia. With naturally primitive features, Paradise Cave looks like a landscape painting, making it very attractive to visitors. According to spelunkers, the deeper one journeys into the cave, the more one feels the wells of heavenly clarity all around. There are a series of white crystal stalactites resembling glass pillars and many other spectacular formations.
Activities: Muddy bath, ziplining, swimming, kayaking, soft caving and jungle walking
Maybe its the unfathomable amount of time, maybe it’s the natural process of erosion and the complete absence of human intervention. Maybe it’s that caves are only starting to be discovered on a planet where humans have existed for thousands of years. Walking through, or swimming through, all of the caves in Phong Nha Ke Bang national park is definitely highlight of Vietnam.
