HA GIANG  (VNS) — A beautiful cave system with magnificent stalactites has been discovered on the Dong Van karst plateau near Lung Khuy village commune in the northernmost province of Ha Giang.

Deputy chairman of the People's Committee of Quan Ba District, Hang Duong Thanh, said the natural wonder was the most beautiful grotto in the province.

It's untouched beauty and splendid, transparent white stalactites are said to be stunning. Measuring from one to two metres, the stalactites take many strange forms.

Some look like giant stone lithophones, others resemble towers or flowers.

During a recent visit to the grotto, provincial Party Committee Secretary Trieu Tai Vinh said it would make an ideal tourist destination.

He said his committee would help raise awareness of residents in the area about the cave system and the geological values of the plateau. — VNS
