Introduction about Paradise Cave
Paradise Cave (Dong Thien Duong) in Quang Binh province, 70km west of Dong Hoi in central Vietnam, stretches for more than 30km and has been a tourist attraction since opening in 2010. However, the discovery of the cave in 2005 was entirely by chance. In 1991, Khanh was searching for aloe in the heavily forested mountains, close to the Laotian border. Resting against a boulder, he heard the distant rush of an underground river and felt the cold breath of a strong, subterranean breeze. Behind the rock was the entrance to a cave.
“It was pitch-black, but by the feeling of the air, I thought I was walking into a huge space,” Khanh said. “The wind felt like something from the underworld.”
Considering his cave had lain undiscovered for millions of years, it is perhaps unsurprising he couldn’t find it again. But the story became local legend. The knowledge that these mountains contained many significant cave formations intrigued a group of British cavers and, in 2005, they engaged Khanh to lead a search for the lost cavern. The expedition failed to locate the monster cave, but consolation came with the discovery of Paradise Cave, which runs beneath Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, about 400km south of Hanoi.
