Why Paradise cave is special ?

Paradise Cave is both naturally stunning and well managed (especially by the lax tourism standards of Vietnam's other World Heritage sites - think Halong Bay). The lighting is subtle, the 1km walking platform is well constructed with good lookout space and the cave is well protected from overexcited tourists And that's all incidental to the incredible beauty of the cave.

Paradise Cave was only discovered in 2005. When the global caving fraternity cast their eyes over it, they knew something special had been found - both in beauty and scale.

The cave is 31kms long and at times reaches up to 100 metres. The 1km path that is open to travellers is filled with exquisite formations.

What to explore at Paradise cave?

After crossing an old forest, visitors see the entrance to the cave shaded by century-old trees and are then dazzled by the mysterious beauty of stalactite pillars, each dozens of metres in diameter, and grandiose rock arches, which are works made by the enchantment and sudden inspiration of the Creator over the past millions of years.

To really explore deep inside Paradise Cave, consider booking Phong Nha Farmstay's 7km Trekking trip (2,650,000d, minimum two people), which penetrates deep into the cave and includes a swim through an underground river and lunch under a light shaft.

There’s a restaurant (meals 35,000d to 70,000d) next to the visitor centre and a cafe sells cold drinks near the cave entrance.


How to get to Paradise cave?

We took the 7km trek, arranged through the Farm Stay. The real adventure starts when you get to the end of the wooden walkway that runs through the brightly (but tastefully) lit section of the caves. Then you open a gate and descend into the darkness beyond, your way lit only by headlamps provided by the guide and his helpers. You now feel less like a tourist gawking at an attraction set up for our enjoyment, and more like an explorer, gawking at dimly lit discoveries at every turn. Our local Vietnamese guide did an absolutely amazing job of making the tour entertaining, educational, fun and safe. This is not for everyone, though. Take the caution seriously that good (actually very good by western standards) physical condition is required.
