Sung Sot Cave, Halong Bay

(4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Halong Bay tour planner makes visiting Sung Sot Cave and other Halong Bay attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Halong Bay Cruise on this incredibly caves tour program. Having a large and well-maintained walking than I thought too. More than anything, the most looked at the top of the cave is a scenic Halong Bay was the best.
