DAILY GROUP TOUR: DARK CAVE AND PARADISE CAVE 1 DAY
DARK CAVE, PARADISE CAVE
Located in the middle of the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, Paradise cave is beautiful as it name. It was discovered and labeled the world’s most beautiful and magnificent dry cave by scientists from the British cave research association in 2005 and has become a favorite destination of tourists. When discovering Paradise cave, you seem to get lost in the fairy tale place on Earth. To make easier for tourist to visit and to protect this cave, local government built a wood bridge in the cave. This bridge makes the cave more beautiful and sparkling.
Dark cave is a branch of Phong Nha cave system with the length of 5,558 m and the height of 80 m. It has a primitive beauty with thousands of several spectacular stalagmite and stalactites. Exploring Dark cave is really an amazing experience. We will kayak along Chay river, walk through the dark with just head torches and plunge into a narrow cavern full of thick, wonderfully gloppy, gooey mud. You will be surprised of the beauty hidden in the dark. Inside Dark cave, you will have the opportunity to have a natural mud bath and swim in the cool lake. Besides, you can join many activities such as swimming, zip line, high-wire, and kayaking.
