Phong Nha – Ke Bang has been an attractive tourism site in the central region for a long time. Situated far from the Dong Hoi town, the central province of Quang Binh province 50 km, Phong Nha – Ke Bang was recognized as world cultural heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2003.
There are seven things, including the most beautiful underground river, the highest and largest cave gate, the most beautiful sand and stone bank, the most beautiful underground lake, the most beautiful and the widest dry cave, the most miraculous and magnificent stalactite, and the longest water cave.
From the wharf of the Son River, tourists will be guided to get a boat to the Phong Nha cave which has many branches and stretches over 20 km.
In the front of the cave, the stunning scenery of mountains and rivers is even more attractive. The imposing nature with particularly interesting images appears to arouse people’s imagination. The gate of the cave is about 20 meters wide and 10 meters high and has rough stalactites. The cave is like an upturned bowl above the water.
The water is clear and still as a mirror. The farther in we go, the weaker the light is. And then it is dim. There are only colorful lamps which make stalactite more miraculous.
According to a survey by Vietnamese and British scientists, the system of caves in Phong Nha – Ke Bang consists of 20 caves which are 70 km in length. The most outstanding one is Phong Nha which is 7,729 meters in length and the 13,969-meter underground river.
Apart from Phong Nha cave, there are many beautiful caves, including Toi, E, Cha An, Thung, Khen, En, Khe Ry, Khe Thi and Khe Tien caves.
The world heritage, with underground rivers passing through the hillside, miraculous caves, green fields of over 100-year-old trees, and invaluable primeval plants, is an interesting destination for tourists.
