Located about 50km from the center of Dong Hoi city to the Northwest, Phong Nha cave is considered one of the most impressive caves in Vietnam.
The cave is 7,729 meters long with a 13,969-meter underground river and famous for its unique rock formations named after natural shapes such as “Lion,” “Unicorn,” “Octopus,” “Royal Palace,” or “Buddha Statue.”
Phong Nha cave has two parts: a dry cave and a water cave.
The dry cave is located at an altitude of 200m. According to geographers, since ancient times, the underground river has dried up, leaving only the white stone arches and jade green pillars.
