Paradise Cave (Hang Thien Duong) has been discovered in 2005 by scientists of the British Caving Research Association. With a length of 31 km, it is the longest dry cave in Asia. Paradise Cave looks like a landscape painting thanks to its naturally primitive features which make it a very attractive destination for visitors. According to cavers, the deeper one journeys into the cave, the more one feels the wells of heavenly clarity all around. There are a series of white crystal stalactites resembling glass pillars and many other spectacular formations.
After a fabulous discovery of the cave, we will drive back to the resort.
