Inside Dark Cave

Inside Dark Cave

Next to Phong Nha, Dark Cave is the most popular tourism site in the area. It was first discovered in 1990 and opened up not long after that. The Dark Cave is the smaller version of the Son Doong Cave. The reason for the name is that there is no artificial light installed inside the cave and with its total length of 6 kilometers it’s nothing but darkness! Moreover, the rocks inside the cave are dark, some gray some black.
In 2014 a 400 meter double-zip line was built and is now used to enter the cave. The zip-line is the longest zip-line in Vietnam and the Phong Nha-Ke Bang Tourism Center received a Vietnamese Guinness Records award at the beginning of the Quang Binh 2015 Cave Festival which was a big success.  During the cave festival a couple of new tours were launched by our company, including the brand new 6 kilometers Dark Cave exploration. This tour takes visitors from the back entrance of the cave (Thuy Cung) all the way to the main entrance of the cave!
The entrance of the Dark Cave is at the opposite river bank from the Zip-Line tower. The beautiful deep blue color of the Chay river will catch your eye while riding the Zip-Line and a short 20 meter swim is required to actually enter the cave after the ride. The cave is home to many lakes, with a water temperature of about 18 degrees.  Inside the cave there are many unique things to see and experience! There is a natural mud bath at the end of one of the narrow passages and there are many ancient fossils to be found. The fossils are over a billion years old! And the natural mud bath is very good for the skin, and compared to a mud-bath in a spa this is just a fraction of the price.

Our guides will provide you with more information about the history of the cave while exploring it. After successfully exploring the cave it’s time to take the kayak and paddle back to the boat station. Next to the boat station a smaller zip-line can be found, here participants will be able to actually release themselves in to the water. For those with enough energy, the adventure bridge will be a real challenge. Only a few people make it across every month, the adventure bridge was built during the Quang Binh cave festival and has since then attracted a lot of customers. Dare to try it?
Finally, when all the participants have used up their energy in the water games, it’s time to refuel at the Dark Cave restaurant. Our chefs prepare tasty traditional meals for a very reasonable price and the dining area has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

After exploring many caves and having a lot of fun it’s time to return back to the Phong Nha village. The tour van will take participants back between 16:00 and 17:00.

Popular Tour 2: Boat & Bike Tour (Phong Nha Cave, Dark Cave & Bicycle Ride Back)

For those looking for the true Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park experience this tour is the option to choose. The Boat & Bike Tour offers the perfect combination between the exciting adventure feeling and a feeling of soothing relaxation.

Tour Description

Boat & Bike Tour Phong NhaThe  tour starts between 08:00 AM & 09:00 AM,  participants will be picked up by a tour van from the Heritage By Night Hotel and brought to the boat station at the Phong Nha-Ke Bang Tourism Center ticket office.  At the boat station a traditional Vietnamese dragon boat will be waiting and drive them on the Son river to the entrance of the Phong Nha Cave. The Son river is not a regular river, it is a river of which origin is located underground. On this boat ride participants get the chance to fully wake up and see what’s going on beyond the touristic center of Phong Nha.

There are many people living on each side of the river bank as for most people in this area the rivers are a crucial source of food, and for some income. The local people keep fish farms inside the river, these fish need to be fed and therefore the owners go out on traditional boats to find river-weed to feed their fish. They take out the weed from the bottom of the river with two long sticks, almost like giant chop sticks. This is a daily activity which requires a lot of energy, participants will often think of this as the “other side” of Vietnam (the hard working).

Once arrived at the Phong Nha Cave’s entrance it’s time to venture inside the big gazing hole (entrance) and explore the cave by boat. The Phong Nha Cave is not a regular cave, it is the longest subterranean river system and longest underground river cave in the world and also known as “The First Wonder”. It opened up for tourism in 1995 and has been the #1 tourism site in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park ever since.
Before entering the boat driver will shut down the engine and continue with a paddle, this is because we want to visitors and tour participants to truly experience the cave, and thus its silence. A artificial lighting system was installed in 1998 and renewed in 2013, this creates for gorgeous scenery inside the cave and allows visitors to see more of the cave than usual.  The first formation that visitors see while diving deeper inside is usually welcomed by a “whooaa”. This extremely large stalagmite formation rises high up in the air and lighted in a mysterious way.  After 1.2km the boat turns around, visitors are dropped off before the exit and are allowed to walk around in the cave and take pictures of the enormous stalagmite and stalactite formations while slowly making their way back to the boat station at the entrance of the cave.
The Phong Nha Cave is not just a beautiful cave, it also has a rich history and has had many purposes in the past. Inscriptions and old artifacts are found inside the cave. These belong to to the Cham people who inhabited the area thousands of years ago. This ancient culture had it’s own alphabet which till the day of today still hasn’t been fully decrypted!

After successfully discovering the Phong Nha Cave it’s now time to sit back and enjoy another boat ride to Dark Cave. This time the boat driver will take participants upstream on the Chay river, another amazing river that runs through the national park. The Chay river is known for its deep blue water. Along the way children will be playing games in the water, ride buffaloes across the river and wave happily at the tourists passing by. The cool breeze will allow people to embrace the tranquility of the area while seeing the “mini halong bay” formations that rise up from the water surface. On the boat ride to Dark Cave two villages will be passed; Cam village & Ne village. Our tour guides will tell participants more about the history of these villages and their area. This boat ride is the last chance to relax before the big adventure waiting at Dark Cave!

Once arrived at Dark Cave’s boat station it’s time to get geared up for the exploration. Dark Cave was first discovered in 1990 by the same man that discovered the biggest cave in the world: Son Doong.  In 2014 the 400 meter double zip-line was build and since then Dark Cave became one of the most popular tourism sites in the area. The zip-line is currently the longest zip-line in Vietnam and the Phong Nha-Ke Bang Tourism Center received a Vietnamese Guinness Records award in the 2015 Quang Binh Cave Festival. During this festival a new Dark Cave tour was launched (6 km Dark Cave exploration) and a new obstacle course above the water was built (the adventurous bridge).
The entrance of the cave is located near the end of the zip-line, a short 20 meter swim is required in the cool emerald green sometimes blue water of the Chay river. While venturing deep in to the cave our professional English speaking tour guides will provide visitors with plenty of information about the cave and its history. At the end of one of the narrow passages there’s a natural mud-bath waiting and we assure that it’s a lot of fun! There’s more to the cave than just the mud bath. It is home to many different lakes and ancient fossils are forever embedded in to the rock walls of the cave. With it’s stunning length of 6 kilometers the Dark Cave is a truly magnificent sight without any artificial lighting installed which creates for a TRUE cave experience.
After successfully exploring Dark Cave it’s time to take a short kayak ride back to the boat station. Next to the boat station a shorter zip-line is located and visitors can release themselves in to the water. For those who still have energy a shot at conquering the adventurous bridge will be very tempting. There are not many people who actually make it across!

Buffaloes & Bikes!

Buffaloes & Bikes!

After the lunch it’s time to head back to the Phong Nha village by bicycle. However, instead of driving on the regular boring road to Dark Cave our tour guides will take participants off –road through the many villages along the river. The locals warmly welcome foreign tourists, especially the children. The children often ask for candy so we encourage participants of the Boat & Bike Tour to take some sweets and hand them out to the children in these villages. Our guides will take participants to places which tourists are not likely to go on their own, that’s why this tour is so unique and exciting. Our guides will provide information about the history rich area, and stop at the wine-cave which was used in the war. To get to the Phong Nha village participants will have to cross the suspension bridge followed by a ferry crossing. Once the opposite side of the river bank has been reached it takes just 20 more minutes to arrive in the village, however along the way there are plenty of interesting stops.
