HCM CITY   Tiên Sơn Cave belongs to the Phong Nha – Kẻ Bàng tourist complex that comprises natural scenic spots in the central province of Quảng Bình. It is now on the list to be recommended to UNESCO for recognition as a World Heritage Site.

Originally called Dry Cave, Tiên Sơn Cave was discovered in 1935 in the limestone mountains of Kẻ Bàng. The Phong Nha – Kẻ Bàng Caves consists of the Phong Nha Cave system, with 9 caves of various sizes.

The spectacular Tiên Sơn Cave is the most magnificent limestone cave in Việt Nam and just opened in 2000.  It is about 400 metres away from the famous Phong Nha Cave and at a height of 135m.

Tiên Sơn Cave is more than 980m long. Going into the cave for about 400m, you will see an abyss about 10m deep. Then comes another part of the cave, about 500m long, which is rather dangerous for walking. At present, nearly 400m of the cave have a lighting system to make it safe for visitors.  VNS
