The beauty of Tam Coc Bich Dong – a unique combination

Dubbed the “Ha Long on land” – Tam Coc attracts visitors with its majestic, poetic natural beauty and fresh, cool air all year round. This place owns a system of majestic limestone caves with three main caves: Hang Ca, Hang Hai, and Hang Ba, each cave with its own unique beauty, creating a unique attraction for Tam Coc.

The Beauty of Hang Ca

The largest cave in the Tam Coc cave system, with a length of 127 meters, an average width of 30 meters, and a cave arch height of 5 to 8 meters. This place is famous for its magnificent and majestic beauty with many stalactites and stalagmites in unique shapes, sparkling under the light.

In the middle of Hang Ca is a skylight that is wide and nearly 3 meters high, allowing natural light to enter the cave, creating a shimmering and magical light effect along with many sections of the cave ceiling that have collapsed, creating natural limestone “curtains”.

Exploring the Mystery of Hang Hai

Located about 1 km from Hang Ca, with a length of 60 meters and an average width of 16 meters. Hang Hai has a more elegant and gentle beauty than Hang Ca. Exploring the inside of the cave, you will encounter many stalactites and stalagmites with diverse shapes such as: Buddha statues, snakes, elephants, …

Dotted around the stalactites, Hang Hai has many sections of the cave ceiling that have collapsed, creating small “skylights”, allowing natural light to enter the cave. In particular, if you pay attention, in front of the entrance of Hang Hai there is a quite wide and relatively flat stone yard, this is where visitors often stop to rest and take pictures.

Visit Hang Ba

The smallest cave in the Tam Coc cave system, with a length of 50 meters and an average width of 10 meters. Hang Ba has a more “peaceful” beauty than the two cave systems Hang Ca and Hang Hai. Exploring Hang Ba, you will feel a rustic and simple beauty, not too many stalactites or stalagmites, but instead the walls and vaults are undulating with many shapes by the impact of water flows and the accumulation of the characteristic essences of the limestone mountain region.

Under the cave is a small river flowing through, where you can take a boat to explore the cave quite conveniently. The cave entrance faces directly towards the center of the Tam Coc tourist area.

Looking at Tam Coc from the inside of the cave will surely give you a feeling of Tam Coc that is very majestic and magnificent.
