The awarding ceremony of the Asia Book of Records’ certificate took place late last week at the launching of the fourth Quang Binh Cave Festival in Dong Hoi city.  

Earlier, in 2011, Thien Duong cave was awarded two records by the Viet Nam Record Organization including “Long dry cave with the most unique stalactites and stalagmites system in Viet Nam” and “Cave with the longest wooden bridge in Viet Nam”.

Thien Duong is located 60km northwest of Dong Hoi city, in a primeval forest at an elevation of 360m above the sea level. The cave is 31.4km long and was first discovered by the British Caving Association in 2005.

During the month-long Quang Binh Cave Festival, tourists can engage in a variety of activities, including helicopter tours, music shows and street carnivals./.
