See the World Heritage-listed limestone halls up to 100 m (328 ft) high and 150 m (492 ft) wide at Paradise Cave, lying 200 m (656 ft) above sea level. This 31 km (19 mi) long cave is the largest in the national park, with some 1 km (0.6 mi) accessible to the public. Marvel at intricate stalactites suspended like giant beards from the ceilings, and other fabulously interwoven works of nature illuminated by LED lights. You can walk 1.6 km (1 mi) from parking lot or rent a golf cart to reach the mouth of the cave.

  • size of the cave was so big, by far the most impressive cave i have ever seen. A little bit tainted by some loud chinese tourists so go early 
  • I've seen something never been so impressive! He runs out there, but something in that length. There were very hot and we wanted to run better instead of taking the buggy. but still we had to continue the high mountain run. who so not so good on foot is to take the buggy. because you can be in the cave is still enough run;)... but the cave was really worth every step!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
