Me Cung Cave

Me Cung Cave provides peaceful scenery. It is the perfect place to visit when spending time on Halong Heritage.

Two kilometers south-west of Ti Top Beach is the Me Cung Cave (Bewitching Cave). It formed on Lom Bo Island, and seen from afar, the entrance is like the roof of a house denting the island’s side. Unlike many other grottoes and caves in Halong Bay, no legend is attached to Me Cung Cave. However, it is an important archaeological find, where significant prehistoric remains have been found. It is  recognized by archaeologists as one of the vestiges of the pre-Ha Long new Stone Age culture, that existed between 7,000 and 10,000 years ago. The most traces were found at the cave entrance Melania shells - the only living species of snails in streams. The space inside is divided into many small chambers. Squeeze through the narrow doorway, a gaping hole etched into the cliff side, and you’ll find yourself in an underground wonderland, with small rocky chambers and tumbling stalagmites and stalactites, lit-up by trickles of daylight and sprinkled with fossilized shells. Following the pathway out of the cave, a rock-cut stairwell leads to another dramatic sight - the shimmering Me Cung Lake, with its startling blue waters circled by karst cliffs and harboring a colorful array of coral, fish and sea creatures. Many foreign visitors have to ring enjoy seeing coral dust like giant mushrooms trees under the blue water. Lying adjacent to the lake, there is an area of old trees popularly known as an alluring “royal garden”.
