Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I visited with my friend who is French. When we arrived, there was a young girl and a woman for renting torchlight. We rented two mini lights (and a free tour guide offered inside the cave), which cost us only 40000 vnd i.e. less than 2 euros. The girl was very nice and knew well the cave. She warned us everytime we encountered difficult places. We wondered how she could manage with only a pair of slippers. From her I learned that none of the villagers have ever explored all the paths inside the cave. So if you are adventurous and sportive, you will love the cave because you will have to climb and crouch a lot. And if you can, please help the locals. Their lives depend on only working on the fields and tourism. Most of the young could not afford school after 15.

Not a lot to see here. It is a small cave, if you want to go further you have to have a guide and be prepared for very small holes to go through. I think the 300 m of lightbulb is really enough and you will not get to the end anyway. Guy at the will charge you 10k dong/ pax for turning on the light.

You need to be 5 feet tall or shorter to explore comfortably. Plenty of "buy from me" and "I guide you" at the entrance

Can get small and cramped and your clothes will get dirty. Before you go in the cave, people will try to sell you flashlights. I think they even have electric lights in the cave but you have to pay to turn them on. Children follow you in the cave and want to be your guide for a price. Absolutely nothing to see inside. Don’t bother going.

It was a 800 meters trek from our bus to the cave. Villagers followed us all the way from our bus to the cave and back. They can speak enough English to ask where you are from and name. Then they will ask you to buy the items they are selling. While the walk to the cave could have been pleasant, it was spoilt when the villagers followed us and tried to strike up a conversation. I pretended not to speak English so it was not so bad during the trek to and from the cave. However reaching the cave, I found it disappointing as it was in total darkness. While a small sign said the cave was lighted for the first 300 meters, it was not lighted at all. If you plan to visit this cave do bring your own torchlight. Could be interesting and beautiful but when we were there, we could not proceed any further than few meters from the entrance.

The walk through the village to the caves is nice. When you get to the cave entrance it will get very dark. The caves are not a place to wander around as it is dark and the health and safety element is lacking. But at least you can say youve been there. Thousands of Vietnamese people hid in these caves during the various wars that have engulfed Vietnam. The caves are very deep and dangerous. Watch your step it is 500m deep!
