It's not really a long climb and the steps are not scary at all.
There's a part outside of the cave with a magnificent view of Halong Bay but there are a LOT of tourists, it will take you forever to get a picture w/out...More
The cave was amazing...huge and pretty cold inside. It was totally worthed despite the long stairs and the humid made we sweat from top to toes. I recommend to visit Vietnam in Autumn. The weather will be better. When you were lucky, you could find...More

Once past the initial crowds it become better inside. Quite interesting

102 steps to the entrance then what they don't tell you its another eighty odd steps inside to get out before the 200 to get back down.
Pleased we visited great stalagmites & Stalactites with a great lighting displaying these.
A must is you must...More
Hidden gem of mother nature. Surreal experience. Visited the caves in a group with my husband as a part of the activities planned by Alisa Cruise. It was like living Indiana Jones and Jumanji. Definitely want to come back.
