Top things to do in Sung Sot Cave

Step through the cave entrance. Visitors will be overwhelmed by the magnificent scenery in the cave. With a total area of over 10,000 square meters, Sung Sot cave is one of the largest caves in Ha Long Bay. The Quang Ninh tourism industry has created a small paved path from the cave entrance to the exit. Decorated elegant light poles on both sides to show the way for visitors while using light to highlight the scene beautiful in the cave.

The first chamber

Inside the cave is divided into two main compartments. The outer compartment is often compared to a giant Opera house with curved dome and lots of stalactites that sparkle like lights.

The second area

In the middle of the cave there are large stalactites connecting from the arch of the cave to the cave floor. It makes the scene even more beautiful. The roof of the cave has no cracks, so there is no dripping water. The interesting thing is that the cave is so large, but when entering the cave, the voice of the person is not echoed but still is clear.

The last chamber

The next compartment was equally magnificent, with the cave suddenly expanding to accommodate thousands of people. In this compartment there are many stalactites created by the magical hands of nature into many shapes such as sword, horse, dinosaur shape, banyan tree, sea bear … Some ponds and lakes look very small. Cassava makes the scene in the cave even cooler. Stalactites and stalagmites fill the top of the cave and inside the cave, creating a spectacular scene.

Going on to the highest peak of the cave, visitors will admire a mesmerizing scene named “royal garden”. There is a clear, tranquil lake here, surrounded by green trees, beautiful flowers and leaves. There are many species of birds inhabiting here with monkeys running around in the trees.

Visitors will be immersed in admiring the wild and charming beauty of nature and forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. Because of such wonderful magical scenery. Sung Sot cave is one of the tourist destinations of Ha Long Cruise chosen by many tourists to visit the most.
