Thien Long cave – (Phu Long Cave)

The Phu Long Cave, also known as the Thien Long Cave, located in Phu Long commune – Cat Hai – Cat Ba, is an ideal tourist destination for those who love natural landscapes, prehistoric archaeology, and ecotourism. The cave is also a repository of ancient bones, harboring many mysteries as it was once the domain and refuge of pirates. Let’s explore this mystical cave together with

The Phu Long Cave is likened to a labyrinth within the Cat Ba archipelago. Upon arrival, visitors will encounter a narrow entrance with rugged rocks protruding, facing south to welcome the sea breeze. Passing through the entrance reveals a spacious interior, with low ceilings ranging from 1.5m to 2.1m high. Large, winding rock formations and deep pits form the cave’s vault.

The Phu Long Cave is divided into three sections. Beyond the narrow entrance lies the first cave, characterized by drooping stalactites and rugged terrain. The main entrance arch is gracefully curved, with stalactites resembling clusters of milk flowers dripping water.

The Second Cave boasts lofty and wide spaces, with the cave’s water reflecting a silver sheen as sunlight streams in, resembling a starry sky. Above, there are golden mountains, and silver streams cascading down. Beyond the second cave, visitors reach the entrance to the third cave, flanked by sculptures of mythical beasts and divine elephants. Visitors must climb atop the back of a large turtle made of white stalactites to enter the third cave. The third cave, is divided into two areas: the celestial palace on the left and the Buddhist temple on the right. The celestial palace is adorned with gold nets, dragon thrones, deity statues, sleeping fairies with flowing hair, and divine beings perched atop stalactite columns. All of these are creations of stalactites and imagination that visitors have brought to life within these cavernous formations.


Hoa Cuong Cave

Hoa Cuong Cave is situated on the side of Cat Ba Island, adjacent to Ha Long Bay, and also serves as the ferry terminal connecting to Tuan Chau in Quang Ninh. Visiting Gia Luan is akin to entering a harmonious blend of mountain and water, within the biosphere reserve of the Cat Ba Archipelago World. The cave is located in the northeast mountain range of the Cat Ba Archipelago, with an elevation of about 15-20 meters above the residential area and 50 meters above sea level. The cave’s height is approximately 10 meters, with its widest point being 25 meters and a length of about 100 meters. Inside the cave entrance, there are numerous stalactites and stalagmites resembling exquisite sculptures bestowed by nature. Beneath the cave floor lies a small lake, adding to the mystical atmosphere when illuminated by sunlight. The various shapes of stalactites and stalagmites evoke images of characters from fairy tales or miniature villages, resembling the Cat Ba Archipelago within the cave.

What makes Hoa Cuong Cave even more special is that archaeologists have excavated and discovered a fossilized tooth of an ancient primate dating back 100,000 years. This fossilized tooth of an ancient primate is a significant discovery on our territory, along with other fossil specimens found in Kéo Lèng Cave in Lang Son province and caves in Yên Lạc, Hoa Binh. This discovery provides evidence of the existence of ancient primates on Cat Ba Island tens of thousands of years ago, a topic that scientists have debated for centuries regarding the distribution of areas where ancient primates lived. Hoa Cuong Cave needs to be protected as a national heritage site. Despite its proximity to residential areas, Hoa Cuong Cave remains largely untouched by human intervention. With its highly convenient geographical location and transportation system, Hoa Cuong Cave is an ideal destination for travelers interested in archaeological tourism. The Cultural, Sports, and Tourism Department of the island district has research and introduction programs for tourists within the archaeological tourism system of Cat Ba Island, including Hoa Cuong Cave.
