Photo Blog – Paradise Cave, Phong Nha

If you’re heading to Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, chances are you’re planning a trip to Paradise Cave.

Only discovered in 2005, this was once thought to be the longest cave in the park (now that record has been overtaken by Sơn Đoòng Cave), and since it’s discovery, has been developed and opened up for tourists to see.

This cave takes things to an all new level, the likes of which I haven’t seen in any cave before.

It’s located a short (20-30 minute) drive from Phong Nha, and involves a quick 1.5km walk from the carpark to the entrance (or you can jump on a golf buggy). The typical route you take inside then continues for another kilometre or so.

You’ll find plenty of stairs once you’re inside the cave as you make your way down into its depths, but expect to be continuously amazed by the sheer size and beauty of the place that you won’t even notice them!

At 250,000 VND, entry isn’t too cheap, but it’s definitely worth every cent.

Here’s some shots from my walk through the cave (photos by Juul Heuvelmans) – my favourites are those with the reflections in the water:
