Maybe its the unfathomable amount of time, maybe it’s the natural process of erosion and the complete absence of human intervention. Maybe it’s that caves are only starting to be discovered on a planet where humans have existed for thousands of years. Walking through, or swimming through, all of the caves in Phong Nha Ke Bang national park is definitely highlight of Vietnam.
Paradise cave is the longest dry cave in Asia (located in Phong Nha – Ke bang National Park’s core zone, 25km about Phong Nha cave, 75 km about Dong Hoi and 1h20 minutes driving)at the rest of the day.
With naturally primitive features, Paradise Cave looks like a landscape painting, making it very attractive to visitors. According to spelunkers, the deeper one journeys into the cave, the more one feels the wells of heavenly clarity all around. There are a series of white crystal stalactites resembling glass pillars and many other spectacular formations.
