Well worth a look
What we say:
Opened in 2005, Phong Nha cave’s smaller sister is a must see and not quite so popular with Vietnamese tour groups.
This spectacular cave is located inland, meaning that when Phong Nha’s wet season kicks in this is the best option for a spot of spelunking. Transport drops you off a fair distance from the entrance where you can pay extra for a golf buggy to the base of the steep staircase leading up to the mouth of the cave -- the few extra dollars is well worth spending as it is a bit of a hike.
Paradise Cave is a dry cave, with a 1.1 kilometre-long timber walkway taking you through some incredible cave formations. We rated our experience here higher than at Phong Nha, but were lucky to be the only tourists in the cave at the time.
New tours to the Tu Lan cave system which incorporate a jungle trek have just kicked off with treks from one- to four-days.
