In 1999, the British Cave Research Association conducted a comprehensive survey of the entire cave system, indicating that it is 980.6 metres long in total. The cave is adorned with pristine and sparkling stalactites.

To get access to the cave, travellers have to ascend over 500 steps. The temperature inside the case is around 18-20 degrees centigrade.

Hoang Minh Thang, director of Phong Nha-Ke Bang Tourism Centre, said the centre has renovated the pathways to the cave, resting points, check-in spots and flower decorations.

The centre has also installed a heat-reducing LED lighting system to minimise heat generation to protect stalactite formations. This also helps to ensure sufficient lighting for visitors to explore, take photos and enjoy the natural beauty of the cave.
