Quang Binh au Vietnam: exploitation de la grotte Tien pour le tourisme
Quang Binh, a province in the center of Vietnam, has allowed the Oxalis travel agency to exploit the Tien cave for tourism - one of 57 newly discovered caves.
Consequently, since July 2016, Oxalis has the right to take travelers to the Tien cave 1 and 2 according routes: Experience (1 day), Discovery (2 days) and Explorer Tu Lan cave (5 days).
The Tien cave 1 and 2 (the Tien cave has two branches: Tien 1 and 2) belongs to the system of the Tu Lan cave. After a pause to adjust the route with the local authority of Quang Binh, Tien cave 1 continues to be exploited for tourism. Meanwhile, the Tien cave 2 - one of the 57 newly discovered caves in Quang Binh - will be exploited for tourism for the first time.
Tien cave 2 has 2519 meters long. The deepest point is 94 m above the ground. In front of Tien 2, there are 2 water sources. The door has about 3 meters high but only 1.5 meters wide. The most important feature of this cave in Quang Binh is that the ceiling is covered by stone veins with magical colors. The ceiling of the cave has about 400 meters long and 30 meters high.
In 2016, the expedition of the British Royal Association of Caving in partnership with the University of Natural Sciences in Hanoi and the Office management of the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park led the investigation and exploration of caves in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Currently, the expedition discovered 57 caves with a total length up to 20.127m in 14 different regions. These caves are located in remote areas in Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province in the center of Vietnam.
To find these caves, speleologists had to use special equipments. In the 57 newly found caves, Hoa Huong has 2.876m long; Tien 2 has 2.519m; Dinh 1 has 1,500 meters; Ruc My Rinh has 1.360m 2; Cay Sanh has 850 meters ...
In addition to these found caves, the expedition also discovered many rare and unusual animals such as fish, crustaceans that have transparent bodies. This is valuable information for scientific research in geology, geomorphology and biodiversity of the Quang Binh province.
