Thiên Đường Cave is 31km long and considered to be the longest cave in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

Thiên Đường Cave (Paradise Cave) is a cave in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, 60 km northwest of Đồng Hới city. The cave was discovered by a local man in 2005 and 5 first km of this cave was explored by explorers from British Cave Research Association in 2005.

This cave is easier and much more comfortable to trek than the Lod Caves in Thailand. Sturdy and clean wooden walkways were built and the cave was brightly lit. The walkways might be a little slippery so do take extra care while touring.

Admire amazing stalactites and the stalagmites of Paradise Cave. Let your imagination run wild! I love how the warm light glows and interact with the surroundings giving the cave depth and character.

The shot below reminds me of a Chinese deity, Tudigong (土地公). Did you managed too see his long white bread and hat?

The end is marked by purple tinted stalagmites with no further walkway. There's only an exit to the cave, so make a U-turn back to the entrance. While making your way back, admire the cave from a second viewpoint. You might find interesting structures that you missed previously.

Enjoy the photos folks =)
