Tour Highlights

Explore caves: Fun Cave, Tien 1 and Tien 2 Caves – the final caves of the Tu Lan Cave System. The structure of the cave’s dome inside is truly unique and rare, and the cave ceiling forms swirls like the Milky Way in outer space. The stalactite areas form large terraced fields inside the cave with many other unique things.

Experience the “flying fox” inside Hang Tien Cave 1: a safety system used to cross the stream in case of high water levels (normally walkable to cross). It is an impressive experience when visitors join the Hang Tien Endeavor Tour.

Tien Cave Campsite is one of the dreamiest campsites beside the river with stunning views. Enjoy the “natural infinity swimming pool” right next to the campsite. This is a lake beneath a small limestone cliff, formed naturally with an “infinity view,” as many travelers described.

Swim in the natural infinity pool: The underground river originates in Tu Lan and creates a natural infinity pool at the Hang Tien camping area. This natural lake is extremely captivating, with emerald water and mountain views surrounding it.

  • Note: On heavy rainy days, the water will not be as clear and emerald as on regular days.

Local cultural experience: You will have dinner at one of the local homes after leaving the Hang Tien cave. You can learn about their daily life whilst dining with their family. You can also explore the lovely and tranquil Tan Hoa village by bicycle.

Unique stay after the tour: You will stay one night at a Rural Homestay in Tan Hoa. The Rural Homestay is a weather-adaptive lodging model based on the construction of 10 flood-resistant floating houses for Tan Hoa villagers. These homestays offer peaceful and rustic views of the lives of Tan Hoa villagers.
