Masterpiece of stalactites in Quang Binh s cave

Cha Loi cave (Quang Binh province) is a suitable destination for a 2-day journey.



Cha Loi, a cave in Quang Binh, is divided into 3 floors. When visiting the cave, visitors enter from floor 2, then move the floor 1 and finish the trip by climbing out through a door on floor 3. Vinh Gau, the photographer who took this photo set, said: "Right when I entered the cave, I felt a chilling wind. I turned on the flashlight and started exploring Cha Loi." (Photo: Zing News)

The cave has stunning stalactites that impressed the visitors. It is known that each year, stalactites only grow about 0.03mm long. Therefore, visitors are recommended not to touch the stalactites when exploring the cave. (Photo: Zing News)

It takes about 4 hours to explore Cha Loi. According to Vinh Gau, the journey is suitable for everyone. His group includes a 60-year-old lady and two 6-year-old kids, all three of them could complete the journey with no difficulty. (Photo: Zing News)

After setting up camps, tourists can swim in a nearby river. Vinh Gau said he felt impressively relaxing to swim alone in such a cool river. (Photo: Zing News)

The valley currently has no internet connection, so people have a lot of time chatting and bonding with each other. (Photo: Zing News)
