Tam Cung Grotto

Located in the center of Halong Bay, 5 kilometers from the Sung Sot Cave to the northeast, Tam Cung Grotto (Three Palaces Cave) is one of the most wonderful caves in Halong. Tam Cung Grotto is situated on the May Den Island – an island which is almost separate from the other islands. On the May Den Island, there are many precarious cliffs and lush forests.

The grotto has three compartments alternating throughout each rock gap. In all three compartments of the grotto, stalactites create many vibrant and wonderful shapes. A lot of lively stalactites look like human figures, flowers and animals.

When entering the first compartment, visitors may hear a strange sound like the traditional instruments sound. Around the cabinet, there are plenty of stalactites that look like elves. On the roof of grotto, stalactites form a picture of a white flower. In the second compartment, there is a clean stream and stalactites are arranged into many strange curtains. When entering the last compartment, visitors can see a magnificent bas-relief which carved into many meticulous and strange shapes.
