Overview about Luon cave - Ha Long bay, Quang Ninh attractions

Luon cave is the paradise of spectacular nature and dreaming landscapes. It has been one of the most appealing attractions for international tourists for years when participating in Halong Bay travel.

Luon cave's location

Luon Cave (Tunnel cave) is located on Bo Hon island, 14km south of Bai Chay beach in Quang Ninh city. In front of the cave is the islet of Turtle and the right is the sky door. Here, the cliffs rise almost vertically with waters that are blue and clear like a mirror. At the edge of the water, a bow door opens at the foot of the island, which is Luon cave. The beauty of Luon cave is the mixture of certain factors like the shapes and sizes of the mountains, the color of the waters and the clouds in the sky.

Luon cave's highlights

At the water level, a vaulted entrance leads into the cave, just at the base of the island. Passing through a pretty entrance, you will approach a round and quiet lake, surrounded by lush trees and dangerous high stone walls, the scenery is beautiful here. Especially, the monkeys run here and there, in groups, Benjamin figs shade the landscape and fragrant flowers of orchids hang on it. The various species abound in the lake such as shrimp, fish, crab, and cuttlefish.

Luon cave is a closed island group, it connects with the sea by a mouth 4 meters wide, 100 meters long and 3 meters high. Inside the cave, the 1-square-kilometer brackish lake is surrounded by mountains. On the cliff, we still find traces of fossils of freshwater gastropods, which prove that humans lived there and then it had to be a deep valley.

When the boat enters Luon cave, you will be surprised by a beautiful and poetic image. All the limestone rock is surrounded by lush green plants, especially the orchid that has the beautiful flower and sweet scent. The emerald water, the color of the plants, the voice of the birds and the sound of the wave the rocks make us imagine a harmonious concert of nature. Perhaps this beauty is given by the creator. It's very beautiful!

We think the best time to visit the Luon cave is in summer. When the sun is shining, it is also the moment that the cave awakens with a strange beauty.

When we come at night, Luon cave looks like a secret labyrinth that makes tourists want to discover
