Where is Phong Nha Cave

As the second biggest cave in Vietnam, the main cave is a around 8km long and contains 14 grottoes, plus 14km underground river, making it one of the most outstanding limestone karst ecosystems in the world.

Phong Nha Cave the great boat trip
After the bus drive from the hotel, the trip to Phong Nha Cave continues by a beautiful boat ride along the Son river with daily life activities along the river banks, water buffalo wandering on the fields.
The river starts from a cave then when arriving the cave entrance, boat engine is turned off and rowing boat into the cave, enjoying the magnificent stalactites and stalagmites, listening to the drops of water to the water surface among the supreme quietness are the forever lasting emotion for any visitors.
In addition to the wet Phong Nha Cave where we can visit by rowing boat, a look to the dried cave 400 steps above can lead to another paradise where stalactites and stalagmites can make sounds thanks to the winds (stalactites and stalagmites here are hollowed and the sound is loud) . That’s the best music of nature. That’s why this place is named Phong Nha, literately means the teeth of wind.
