  • Paradise is one of the most incredible I've ever had in terms of caves. To get to her rented a bike and pass enjoy the landscapes of mountains and rice paddies. The cave entrance is at the top of a hill which can be accessed by stairs or very comfortable footbridges, after walking a while from the entrance of the park where it is located. Also it can be at the beginning of the ladder in a few golf carts that you have to pay, but the walk is very nice by the beautiful and lush vegetation. The cave is all illuminated, allowing you to see the wonderful formations in the stone, with different shades and at the same time appreciate the Majesty of the same, inside there is in perfect condition wooden walkways that go down to the part that you can visit with a journey of approximately a kilometer.

  • Nice cave, good thing to do on a short visit, you have to book a boat to go there and then you follow the river inside the cave and at the end there is a short walk inside the cave  more »
  • We are not great cave people so whilst very impressive, it's a hot climb to get to the entrance and whilst the cave is spectacular, it wasn't the highlight of our day...the scenery on the way to Parad...  more »

  • Great place to visit. At the entrance, a big place with high ceiling shows up. Go deep in side, more and more beautiful sceneries will appear. Stalactites naturally created for millions years with many difference shapes. Normal 1km route takes you 2 ~ 3 hours. Special route which discover 7km deep inside the cave would take you a full day but much more interesting.
  • Incredible cave. The most interesting thing in Vietnam we saw til now (13th day). It's huge, beautiful, interesting, well organised for tourists, and you really have to walk a bit (they wrote 670m up; then up to 1km inside the cave). We got there on motorbike, could take a buggy for ~2km flat road, but walked. Further everybody have to walk. We entered the cave after 15:30, so it was almost empty.
  • It's an amazing place, only 250,000 each to enter, then there's a bit of a walk to the actual cave entrance, but once you're there it's incredible. Do it yourself you don't need a tour, hire a scooter from Phong Nha because the ride to the cave past the botanical gardens has the most amazing views.
  • I've been to many caves so was sceptical of people's reviews that this was special. I have to say that this is the most magnificent display of staligmites that I have ever seen. The lighting is in perfect harmony and the walkways unobtrusive. We were lucky enough to see it with only a few people around. Some tour groups came in as we were leaving and it definitely takes away from the experience. You should definitely go to this cave.
  • This is a do it yourself activity! Nice views of surrounding areas on way to cave, especially if you're on a scooter. Cost was 250k dong to enter. Long walk from payment counter to entrance of cave-sidewalk of street and climbing at least a couple hundred steps up to cave entrance. Massive cave! If you're staying nearby, I felt it was worth doing for an afternoon.
