There is a huge stalactite inside that lends material substance to the legend that this is a place where fairies come down from heaven to play and enjoy the stunningly beautiful landscape.

During the rainy and flooding season, water from local streams and rivers pours into the cave, creating underground rivers. When the water recedes, natural lakes are formed, and layers of stalactites that look like terraces come into view.

This tunnel in the Cha Loi Cave has stalactites of diverse shapes and sizes that invite awestruck contemplation. “The attraction of Cha Loi Cave is the thrill of a space that is constantly changing. You keep going down and down and suddenly, with no warning, the direction changes into a long ascent at the end of which we can see light at the end of the path,” Long said. The photographer said the team was thankful for the enthusiastic support of tour companies that facilitated their discovery of the Tien and Cha Loi caves. He added his photography in the dark caves was also aided by the lighting support team.
