Phong Nha Cave is located in Minh Hoa commune, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh Province, central Vietnam. Phong Nha grotto is part of the world’s biggest cave network, containing sixteen caves across seventeen kilometers.
There are a wide selection of guided cave tours in Phong Nha Ke Bang national park. You can either join a group tour or a private guided caving, trekking tour. The longest trekking expedition lasts up to 7 days offering the chance to discover the World biggest cave.
Phong Nha gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2003. However, because of its geographical isolation, the immense cave network attracted only the most intrepid travelers until recently, when expansion of the Ho Chi Minh Trail into a highway from Ha Noi to Ho Chi Minh City opened up the Truong Son Region, making Phong Nha more accessible.
Now, people enjoy its peace as they drift along the Son River and marvel at how, year after year, the river has pushed water through the mountains, forming some of the world’s most spectacular caverns.
According to legend, the Jade Emperor descended form Heaven and began to preach his gospel to an assembled crowd, whose members stood rapt. The Jade Emperor’s listeners included local farmers and laborers as well as noblemen and academics who had traveled hundreds of kilometers. Each listened, spellbound. These followers awoke from their reverie only when the Jade Emperor boarded his boat to return to Heaven. They remained motionless is awe. Moved by their piety, the Emperor immortalized his audience by turning his listeners into the petrified forms that fill the Phong Nha Caves.
Vietnamese experts and members of the British Royal Society have explored the caves, attempting to reach the farthest nooks and crannies. From their work, geologists know that Phong Nha deserves its many accolades.
Phong Nha is Viet Nam’s longest underground cave network, has the tallest cave entrance, the most beautiful underground beach, the most stalagmites and stalactites, and the deepest dry cave. Its magnificence is too much for the naked eye to absorb.
