Climb 680 steps through lush vegetation into a large grotto at Sung Sot Cave, a part of Ha Long Bay World Heritage Site. Filled with unusual rock formations highlighted by colored lights, the cave features naturally carved limestone in intricately ornate shapes covering its long walls. Stalactites and stalagmites under spotlights create a dramatic effect for spectators in this popular tourist spot. You can see limestone in the shape of a Buddha or a tortoise, with the most famous formation in the shape of a phallic rock under pink spotlights, believed to contribute to fertility.

  • Part of our cruise in the Bay of Ha Long. Attention: get a slew of markets before reaching the entrance to the cavern! Attention again: there are sneakers or other shoes that do not slip too, the soils are wet and not plans! Apart from that, it's good to have a bit of freshness. And the guide tells us about the history of this cave. If I well understood, at a time fishermen came shelter typhoons and in bad weather in general here. Beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Several Caverns at the Viet Nam, this one has some particularities: the fact that she has served as shelter to fishermen, whether in the Bay of Ha Long and finally, it offers a magnificent view of the Bay at the bottom. It's not bad!
