Inside Lung Khuy cave
Located just over 10km from Fairy Twin Mountain, Lung Khuy Cave is a must-visit destination on your journey to discover Ha Giang. The cave is hidden on a high mountain in a primitive Hmong ethnic village. Although the cave has existed for a very long time, with an age of about 400-500 million years, it was only announced and developed for tourism in 2015. The cave is closely associated with the spiritual life of the local Hmong people. Besides admiring the beauty here, you can also experience the daily life of the locals. Each season brings its own unique beauty, sometimes it’s just passing through fields of ripe corn in summer or barren rocky fields in winter. Sometimes it’s just simple images of the local people’s labor, such as gathering firewood or cutting grass for cattle. And it may make you wonder how they can cultivate and survive on a land full of karst like this.
