About Phong Nha Cave

Phong Nha Cave is a cave in Quảng Bình Province, Vietnam. It is 7,729 meters long and contains 14 grottoes, as well as a 13,969-metre underground river. Its cave system features underground passageways and river caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites. The stalagmites that used to stand at the cave’s entrance apparently inspired its name: Phong Nha means ‘Wind and Teeth’.
