Dark and Bright Cave Halong Bay
Dark and Bright Cave lies on the border of Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay. It is considered to be one of the best choices of caves in Halong Bay for visiting.
Considered as Sung Sot Cave but hidden half-body underwater, Dark & Bright Cave attracts tourists thanks to its very primitive characteristics.
Dark & Bright Cave
Surrounded by a great limestone mountain near Cat Ba National Park, the system of islets connects with the water via a 4m-wide mouth. To explore the Dark and Bright Cave, instead of climbing tons of stairs like the others, kayaking, riding a rowboat, or swimming are the only options for tourists to explore its true beauty. The water there is rich in marine life with shrimp, fish, crab, and cuttlefish in abundance. After wandering around to have the outside look, you can feel the art of natural stalagmites on the cave’s dome and wall with your own palm when weaving into the grotto.
Padding through the “tunnel” is an adventure itself due to very little natural light and no artificial light to support mass travel like other caves. There is also a zipline service for you to explore the cave in a more thrilling way. Passing through the cave, there is a sea valley surrounded by magnificent mountains. The scene will undoubtedly impress you and your travel partners. Floating your kayak on the water to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere will be an amazing feeling that you would never forget.
