Did the short 1/2 day visit - all on the built wooden walkway. It is really well done. I have been to several caves that were not lighted and I thought this one will be very touristy because it is lighted and have a walkway. But to my surprise, the lighting is done very tastefully with white light, none of the christmasy calor lights, and the rock formations are gorgeous.
If you visit during rainy season (June - Nov), most likely you can only do the short 1km walk and cannot go beyond the wooded walkway due to flood danger.

I stayed at the Phong Nha Eco Mountain Farmstay (what a fantastic place to spend a few nights!), and from there I was able to explore this fantastic cave by scooter. The drive was so nice and the views were breathtaking.

The cave itself is best visited in the morning. I got there around 9 am and it was very quiet – barely any people around. It's a little more expensive than Phong Nha cave but it is pretty big and the lighting in the cave is fantastic. The rock formations are tastefully illuminated and so awe-inspiring. You can tell that I love caves and this one definitely is worth seeing.

The hike up to the cave is a little tiring, so bring water with you. At the top, at the entrance to the cave, there is a small restaurant where you can grab some food, drinks and ice-cream.

I would highly recommend you stay at the Phong Nha Eco Mountain Farmstay as they will help you with everything from renting a motorbike and directions. They also offer a free bicycle to every guest, and it is actually a fun day out to explore the national park on one. I did that too and it was a good exercise, well worth the effort.

We did the guided full day 7km+ tour into Paradise Cave with Loc (Lucky). It was incredible - the darkness, quiet, rock formations, underground rivers, etc. are an experience that's difficult to fully describe. Lunch in the doline and swimming in the dark were highlights. Our guide Loc and the porter were terrific - all about safety and comfort while keeping it super interesting. Highly recommend.

Just the walk to the cave is great if you like the jungle. When you enter the cafe the size is breathtaking, and it only gets bigger. It’s like being inside a cathedral inside a mountain. The formations are amazing. We were Lucky, there were almost no people there at the time (saturday at approximately 1pm) but when we left a group of vietnamese people with a guide with a microphone (!) entered. Glad we left at that time

Really amazing cave!!
You pay 5,000 VND for parking and 250,000 entry to the cave per person.
It is quite a walk to the cave itself, with a long path and then a steep climb up a path. You can get a buggy at 10,000 for both ways however there is still the hill when you get off the buggy.
It is honestly so worth it though, the cave is breathtakingly amazing!! No wonder they call it paradise cave, I loved it and wanted to explore more of it.

Incredible and surreal piece of mother nature. Give yourself plenty of time (2-3 hours). It is an impressively engineered walk/boardwalk, staircases that lead down and through the most gorgeous, intricate cave system arguably on the planet. Whomever set the lighting throughout the kilometers of walkways did a brilliant job to allow one to see the colors, the shapes, and yet feel the nature rather than the lighting.
Well worth the time to get here.

Not for the faint hearted. There's an impressive hike to get to the start of the cave!! I'd say it's about 5km from when you park up to the entrance of the cave. As far as we can tell there are three options to visiting this place. 1km which is a well established path for 1km and well lit and you can go in solo and just pay 250,000 dong. Then there seems to be two tour options which go up to 4km and 7km where theres crawling and climbing involved. 1KM IS ENOUGH! After a while it's all just the same...!

This is the biggest tourist cave I've visited. It is huge with lots of stunning formations and well lit. You need to walk about 1.5km from the car park or pay extra for a buggy ride. The walk is on a nice shady paved path. Once you arrive at the bottom of the cave, you need to walk 570m uphill to reach the entrance. There is no way other than walking to get up. I really enjoyed this place and would recommend it!

Incredible 400M year old cave with beautiful formations all over. This was my second time here — did the 7km trek in 2018 and took my husband to do the 4km one (couldn’t do the longer one due to weather) in 2022, and was best as beautiful and awe-inspiring the next time around. The 4km trek is pretty flat all over, so can be done by anyone. Swimming the river for both treks is optional, so make sure to bring a change of clothes if you want. They also give you so much yummy food that you eat in the cave. Our guide Lac was very informative, nice, and funny, and made the whole experience over and beyond amazing :))

I went to Paradise Cave as part of my National Park tour with Jungle Boss. This was our first place to visit on our tour, our guide Lily sorted out the entry tickets and made sure everyone was comfortable before we took the buggy to the foot of the stairs. Yes, there are a lot of stairs to climb up to the entrance, but if you can make the effort you will be rewarded with the spectacular scenes inside the cave. There are lots more stairs to get down into the cave but take your time to enjoy the magnificent formations all around you. The pathway takes you about 1km into the cave where you will get to see a great variety of different stalagmites and stalactites, if you let your imagination go, it’s possible to see all sorts of objects, animals and figures. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit caves in many parts of the world and this one is special. Absolutely great!
