Explore Dark and Light Cave

Dark and Light Cave

This area belongs to Lan Ha Bay, but it’s on the border of Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay.

It’s far from the Surprise cave area, around 2kms, and will take 02 hours more. The system of islets is really imposing.

Just at the base of the islands, there is an arched entrance that leads to the grotto right at the water level.

Passing through the natural entrance, visitors will see a tranquil round lake surrounded by luxuriant trees and different-sized stone walls.

There are weeping fig trees shading inside, and many orchids hang their sweet-scented flowers.

The Dark Cave is the long and dark one, which will require a torch to be handed for visitors beforehand. In contrast, the Light Cave is short, and you can see the other bright side from this side.

Exploring Dark and Light Cave, the best way is kayaking and swimming through the tunnel.

While the Light Cave is always available, the Dark Cave can be swallowed by the tide and difficult to pass through.

Surely, you will be surprised by the amazing limestone islets and mountains in this area.

Controll your kayak and explore each corner of the Dark and Light Cave in your style.

Kayaking Dark and Light cave

There, Benjamin fig trees shade the landscape, and many orchids hang their sweet-scented flowers. In the lake, many species abound shrimp, fish, crab, and cuttlefish.

Inside the grotto, the lake is surrounded by mountains. On the cliff, one still finds traces of fossils of fresh-water snails, which prove that men used to live there, and this must have been a deep valley then.

The beauty of the Dark and Light cave is the mingling of a number of factors: the mountain’s size and form, the color of the water, and the clouds.
