paradise caveVisitors have been invited to take a cultural, spiritual, historical and ecological tour in Quang Binh Province with the itinerary: Sun Spa Resort - Tam Co Cave – Thien Duong Cave – Nuoc Mooc Spring Eco-trail.

The first stop-over on this tour is a 4-star luxury resort - Sun Spa Resort, located on Bao Ninh peninsula. This place is compared with a mermaid lying between two deep blue waters where one side is immense ocean and another side is gentle Nhat Le River. With luxurious accommodation, excellent facilities and perfect place of tranquility for pure relaxation, visitors will be sure of having a wonderful holiday at Sun Spa Resort.

Leaving Sun Spa Resort, visitors go to visit a holy place to the locals known as Tam Co (Eight Ladies) Cave, where eight young volunteers and five soldiers died in the afternoon of November 14th 1972 by bombs dropped to cover this cave. The cave is a national historical relic, located at Km16, Road 20 Quyet Thang (Tan Trach Commune, Bo Trach District).

Continuing the journey, visitors will be in Thien Duong (Paradise) Cave, located in Son Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, the subdivision of ecological restoration forest - the limestone core area of Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park -the World Natural Heritage Site. The cave has just been discovered since 2005 and still in its primitive conditions. This feature really makes it unique and different from the two most beautiful caves in Phong Nha, known as Tien Son and Phong Nha caves. Thien Duong Cave is 30-100 meters wide, with the widest point measuring 150 meters. It is impossible not to be amazed at the huge stalactite structures of different shapes, with some mounds climbing more than 50 meters inside a cave that is about 60 meters high. Thien Duong is a dry cave, no underground river, stretches 31.4 kilometers (this length is considered as a record of a limestone cave). It is the longest cave found in Vietnam so far and has just been opened to tourists since September 3, 2010.

The last place in this tour is the Nuoc Mooc Spring Eco-trail, situated in the Administration - Service Subdivision of Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park (Phuc Trach Commune, Bo Trach District.) The trail traverses the dense limestone forest along the Chay River that is about 3km in length and 100m in width. This place gathers a rich and diverse natural heritage with rivers, lakes, streams, waterfalls, mountains and caves. Visitors can admire the birds, numerous butterflies, dragonflies and the rich flora (including famous orchids) in addition to learning about the park and the local biodiversity.

The most attraction of this trail is the Nuoc Mooc Spring including many small streams which are formed from the lower water column came out from the mountains. They mix with each other as connected networks, windingly flow and finally down on Chay River. Visitors can be refreshed at a pleasant swimming area where the Chay River and the Nuoc Mooc Spring meet.
