Fantastic caves in Vietnam – ‘Avatar is real’

These stunning caves aren’t part of some fairy-tale world or horror movie – they can be found in some of the world’s most remote places in Vietnam. These are the 3 most fantastic caves in Vietnam to discover.

  1. Son Doong Cave

Son Doong Cave (Mountain River Cave) in Vietnam is the largest cave ever found on Earth. So big, it has it’s own ecosystem. Surrounded by jungle and used in the Vietnam war as a hideout from American bombardments. The newly discovered Hang Son Doong cave offers characteristics that are spectacular, enormous & dynamic.

A river, rainforest, towering stalagmites, and a 262-foot rappel into the entrance are among the features, along with rooms big enough to house a 747 and passages that could fit an entire New York City block of 40-story buildings.  This expansive cave remains largely undiscovered.

  1. Tam Coc Bich Dong

Tam Coc Bich Dong is considered as Halong Bay on land. The area used to be the capital of many royal dynasties from Dinh and Pre-Le from the 10th to early 11th centuries.

Tam Coc means three caves, which are Ca, Hai and Ba. It is always worthwhile to take a day trip to Hanoi’s surroundings for refreshment away from the city noise. Drifting along the gentle river under the grotto, travelers can sense the deeply pure atmosphere with a special smell of fresh river water and cool air from the limestone mountains. The boats are typically rowed by one or two local women who also sell embroidered goods. In Tam Coc, visitors may feel lost in a hidden fairy site which is adorned with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites of different shapes and colors sparkling like gemstones. Vietnam travel tours

  1. Phong Nha Cave

Phong Nga Cave, due to the fact you’ll spend most of the trip into the cave on a boat, is an easy cave tour. The limestone landscape is wonderful. The boats take you into the cave under oar rather than motor power and then drop you off to see a bit more on foot before picking you up again to return to the starting point.

As you enter the cave you really are looking at something very special indeed. Nothing is rushed on the trip and you go a good way into the cave before you turn back and do the walking part. Stay overnight in cave, then trek back out…sounds simple, but it was amazing. The landscape is almost untouched and the cave is pristine – low impact camping is practised, with all tents removed after each trek in. This is a truly memorable experience.
