Amazing rock formations within. A sight to behold and remember. Walk and climbs can be challenging for those who are unfit.

Quite Possibly the Most Beautiful Cave In Vietnam
Dec 2020
True, the Phong Nha caves get all of the press due to their size and also to their accessibility. Cao Bang, especially Trung Khanh, where these caves are located, is remote. But, if you can get up here, do it! The tour takes about 40 minutes and covers about 900 meters of the nearly 3 kms of caves in the complex. But, it's not the size that matters here, it's the detailed beauty of the rock and crystal formations. And while I'd traveled here expecting to be blown away by the waterfall, I think the cave was even more impressive. It inexpensive to visit and also really helps the locals. But, regardless of that, it's by far the most beautiful of the caves I've visited in Vietnam.

An amazing cave that has all the qualities of a first class cave. Easy walk and plenty of lighting. If your tall there are some very low ceilings and you may have to crawl. Some very good picture opportunities.

Remember to see the lotus shaped formation inside the cave
Nov 2019 • Couples
We visited this cave while visiting Ban Gioc Waterfall, which is only 3km away. A nice cave to visit and there’s a few nice formations inside the cave. The most interesting one for us is the lotus shaped formation closer to the exit. Overall, a nice cave for people who come for Ban Gioc Fall.

Worth the visit
Nov 2019
We got off the Cao Bang Public waterfall bus at the junction and walked for around 15 minutes to arrive at the entrance.

The views and landscapes here make the walk easy. If you want can hire a tuk tuk from here to take you as well for some $

After you buy your ticket (45,000 VND) make sure to enter the cave from the entrance on the right. There are officers to check your tickets here. Its very easy to go straight on and enter cave through the exit.

There are a few shops to eat and drink and souvenirs.

The cave is interesting and most of all pretty empty compared to major overcrowding in halong bay caves. There is only one path and its cold and breezy inside. Great to escape the outside heat

Cave walk takes around 30 mins at a slow pace.
.
From cave to waterfall 30-45 min walk along the main road.

True gem

The cave was not the reason we came to the north. The falls brought us here and the cave was going to be a place that we would stop at if we're had time, not expecting much excitement. The day was hot and humid and we were able to get a ride from a local from the falls area (the temple) to the cave. The cave is self-guided and we had the place to ourselves. It's a beautiful example of a cave system, with a nicely laid out path throughout. And it's a welcome relief from the heat. This is a "must see" if you came for the falls. I recommend getting a ride from a local, there are plenty around waiting to take you. When you are done, you can get a ride back up to the road to flag down the bus to Cao Bang (if that's how you got to Ban Gioc). The bus goes by every 30 minutes.

Gets better the further in you go
May 2019 • Couples
Was a bit disappointed to start with but then it got better and better. Amazing wavy floors like the bottom of the ocean. Cool glistening formation and jellyfish like stalactites. Well lit but uneven ground. Wear shoes with grip. Worth combining with a trip to Ban Gioc waterfall as 4km apart. Both can easily be reached by public bus from Cao Bang. 70k each way. Departs every 25 mins takes 2.5 hours. Interesting journey in itself.

The beautiful North
Jan 2019 • Family
It’s a long drive from Hanoi but worth the trip if you have plenty of time. We were a group of 4 with an organised tour and lucky to be the only ones on the mini bus. It’s a 6-8 hr trip pending on stops, drivers speed and how many trucks you encounter. Stay for 2 nights in Coa Bang as you need the whole of next day to do the 2 hour drive to water falls. You should visit the Nguom Ngao caves also, this is an amazing place also. The lunch provided on this day was great. All in all it was a great trip. it will take 3 days of your time to do this trip from Hanoi but getting there is all part of a great adventure. The very north of Vietnam is a very beautiful place to visit and best visited in their autumn (Sept-Oct). We were here in winter (Jan 2019). It was quite cool so take a jacket.
