Tham Phay Cave Expedition | Ba Be National Park

Mr Linh has had a Very Big Adventure and has discovered a huge cave in Hoang Tri Commune, in Ba Be District in the north of Vietnam. Although there are several huge caves in Central Vietnam, this is a major discovery in the north and another great reason to visit Ba Be National Park, which is a area of limestone karsts. Any visitors will feel that they are true explorers as nothing in the cave has yet been documented by geologists. The cave is 3-5 km in length and rises to a height of 40 metres. The water course comes from two different sources which meet at a junction. One stream is about 1.5 km and the other 2-4 km. Further exploration is needed to establish this. There are the most incredible rock formations, many stalagmites and stalactites, and huge stone columns, with unbelievable shapes and colours. There are bats, and other insects and also plants, so plenty to interest the naturalist. The entrance to the cave is in the middle of the mountains and well concealed by the jungle, so was very difficult to discover.
