Firstly, we will pass by many green rice fields, rustic villages along the way. Thus, you can see how peaceful the countryside is. Next, we drive along Ho Chi Minh Trail that played a vital role in the fighting for independence of Vietnam. Moreover, this is considered as the Legendary Road in Vietnam war.

Accordingly, North Vietnamese Army built it at the beginning of 1959 to transport weapons, foods, human supplies for the South Vietnam. The trail represented the bravery, sacrifice, solidarity of the Vietnamese people in the revolution of country’s unification. As a result, North Vietnam infiltrated  into the South and they successfully invaded and took over South Vietnam in 1975 to end the war.

All is like a colorful watery painting.

During the war, Phong Nha cave was a part of historic Ho Chi Minh Trail and the local people used the cave as a shelter during some battles in the 1960′. Moreover, the cave was also the place where the Cham people lived inside in the old days.

The Phong Nha Cave is so well known thanks to its seven wonderful things: the longest underground water, the widest and highest cavern entrance, the widest and prettiest sand bank and rock formation, the prettiest underground cave, the most miraculous and magnificent stalactite, the longest underground river in Vietnam, the widest and prettiest cavern and passageway.

As you know, the formation of stalactites happened millions years ago by the absorbance of water. So, this process has dissolved, washed away limestone for millions of years, creating a system of caves, grottoes inside the cave.

Every time we go in, lots of stalactites and stalagmites coming out look like we are being lost in a fairyland. After that, we keep going further in and exploring a part of the world’s longest underground river.

Next, on the way out, we will walk on fine sand to watch more of stalactites and stalagmites coming down from the rock ceiling and rising up from the floor. As we walk up just a few steps, we can relate the picture of rock formations in the cave to the scene of Sapa in the north of Vietnam with waterfalls and terrace fields. You will definitely have a great shoot for this scenery.
