Opened to the public in 2010, Thien Duong or Paradise Cave was founded in 2005 by a local man by the name of Ngo Phong was out foraging for bamboo. He heard howling wind coming from within a mountain & found a the tiny opening with which he managed to fit through.
On entry Ngo Phong was mesmerised by what he found.
Gigantic Stalactites & towering Stalagmites. Huge, breath-taking Pillars & mesmerising Flowstones.
The British Cave Association began explorations into Paradise Cave and after four years of research, it was revealed to be a staggering 31 kilometres in length, making it the longest dry cave in SouthEast Asia. The interior feels as lofty, heavenly and as humbling as a grand cathedral. With vaulted ceilings rich in stalactites, it’s an exceptionally beautiful cave.
As you enter the cave the first impression will be eye-opening & it continues to get better as you continue down the wooden stairs and along the boardwalk for one kilometre through the tastefully lit cavern.
At its largest point Paradise Cave is 100 metres high and 150 metres wide. You’ll see some amazing speleothems (cave formations) and you can easily get lost in time gawking at every glimmer and swirl.
