Upon reaching the entrance, we start to travel along the underground river and you will start to hear some of swallow bird sound on the cave ceiling. Such beautiful stalagmites rising up from the ground as some figures of lady buddha, a toad, a tiger, or an elephant or even some stalactites hanging down like lanterns in Hoi An: all will bear in your mind. And then, you will get off the boat on the way out and walk on fine sand to admire more of stalagmites from the ground and stalactites hanging down from the ceiling of cave. Such a stunning beauty of nature appears in front of you, from biggest golden bell in the cave or fairy chamber or old castle and terrace field upon your imagination.

As you know, the Dark cave is  6 km long and is considered as a “little Son Dong”. In the rainy season, the water level comes up high, forming a large mud lake with lots of minerals to help visitors wash away the dirt of the body. The Chay river is clear blue water mixing up with green trees and majestic limestone mountain. Right here, visitors can experience the zip lining of 400 meters from the station to the entrance of the Dark cave, continue discovering the cave by the head light or bathing with natural minerals that are really good for your health.
