Sung Sot Cave – The Surprising Adventure
In the heart of the World Heritage Site of Ha Long Bay, there is a gateway to another world. What in the world that in the middle of the deep blue sea lays a mysterious cave.
Sung Sot Cave is located in Bo Hon Island of Ha Long Bay. To reach this destination, visitors have to take a ferry to Bo Hon island first. From the port, you will follow your tour guide to walk 50 steps up the rock and then go down another ten steps to reach the cave entrance. One impressing point is that the path leading to the gate is entirely covered with leaves and trees. Those who have been here had felt like they are moving to another world.
The entire cave is divided into two main sections. The first floor is like a massive theater with ceilings up to 30m. As soon as you step inside, you will feel a stream of light shining down from the top of the cave. And when you get to the top of the cave, you’ll think you’ve lost your way to paradise with a miniature forest there.
Sung Sot Cave has thus become the top-rated destination in the travel community. Moving to the area is becoming easier. International tourists can contact the Vietnam local tour operators to find out about suitable Vietnam tour packages.
Son Doong Cave
Vietnam is not only famous for its legendary dishes such as Pho or the bright smiles of its people. Little is known that this S-shaped country is also the roof of the largest cave in the world. And this cave is home to more than 400 species of plants and other rare birds.
Son Doong Cave is extremely impressive with the length of nearly 9km! This spectacular cave was formed 2-5 million years ago. The underground water has eroded the limestone and has created a massive tunnel in the ground. It will not be surprising to say that Son Doong Cave is the door to a world like Jurassic Park. Inside the cave are underground rivers, waterfalls, and a forest!
The discovery of Son Doong Cave is comparable to that of Mount Everest. To explore Son Doong Cave, you need to sign up for a Vietnam private guided tour several months before and must be accompanied by an expedition.
Province, Central Vietnam, Paradise Cave belongs to Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park and is known as the “Imperial Palace in the ground.” This 1.1 km long cave is one of the most stunning and beautiful caves in Asia.
The ceiling has many stalactites and impressive shapes. These stalactites when illuminated will reflect jaw-dropping images. That is why visitors feel like they are standing in a royal building, not a cave. To reach the Paradise Cave, tourists can purchase a daily tour or extend your Vietnam travel itinerary by visiting other cities in the Central such as Hue or Da Nang.
