paradise cave

Deserting this blog for quite a long time, now I’m back with some updates: my last trip to Huế, Quảng Trị, Quảng Bình provinces, visiting some sightseeings: the Huế citadel, the 17th parallel DMZ, the Phong Nha – Kẻ Bàng national park… most of which I’d been to before, the only new thing is: Paradise Cave (Vietnamese: động Thiên Đường), a spectaculous cave of 31 kilometre length, of which only the first kilometre is opened to tourists. The interior is nicely arranged with white – light sources (good for viewing and photographing, it helps revealing the true colors of the stalactites and stalagmites). A hard – wood stairway would guide your footsteps through a path of 1.7 kilometre length, a few hundreds meters down, and rest areas along the way to stop and adore the splendid scenes. I was just simply breathless and wordless once got inside the cave, “Paradise” could easily be among the largest and most beautiful caves of the world, take a look at my pictures, it has the beauty and reminiscent of an imperial palace!
