Tien Phi Cave
After visiting Hoa Binh Dam, tourists should never miss the chance to go to Tien Phi cave on their path to Hoa Binh.
The cave is situated on Thuc’s hill-top (maybe called in other name Thung Phi). The entry mouth is considerably narrow, followed by a gentle slope. Walking 10 more meters, you will see that because of the high and dry cave top, the atmosphere inside is pretty cool and comfortable. As you get farther into the cave, the more excited you may get. Despite the rough ground, you can still enjoy the stalactites glittering illusorily. Stalactites jut out in many funny and lively shapes, exciting visitors’ imagination. Much more interestingly, thanks to nature light from the hole on the cave’s roof, those stalactites become extremely spectacular when bright light is shone on them. Right in the middle of the cave is a charity box and an altar for those who want to prayer. This scene is so tranquil that it is like a sacred and mysterious castle among the world of shaped stones.
Walking10 more meters to your left, you will see a dreamy fairy whose hair falls over her shoulders on an iridescent hammock. Besides, you can find many other rocks in the shape of Buddha, Jesus, leopard and lion etc.
It is here in Tien Phi cave that visitors are exposed to a wide range of fairy tales. Natural masterpieces will definitely make such a good impression on visitors that they should never forget the time in this cave.
