The province People’s Committee on Wednesday allowed a local company, Jungle Boss, to exploit the caves of Pygmy, Over and Dai A for tourism purposes.

The pilot exploitation of the caves will start on the first of December and end in April next year. After the pilot period, the local Department of Tourism and managers of the national park will examine the company’s job, as well as the impact of tourism on the caves, before taking a final decision on the long-term exploitation of the caves for tourism.

The caves were discovered recently, making Quang Binh the “Kingdom of caves” in the country, with the world’s biggest cave Son Doong, and many other wet and dry caves located along the karst mountain range situated in the locality.

The caves are adjacent, with Pygmy 845m long, Dai A 1,616m long, and Over 3,244m long.

Visitors can register to visit the caves and will start their trip at Quyet Thang Village, which is 10km far west from the province’s municipal Dong Hoi City. They will trek on a 20km path under the primary forest in the national park before entering the grotto.

Each trip will take tourists three days and two nights to complete. —
