Tam Thanh Cave

"This is a very beautiful cave and it is definitely worth a visit. When you enter the cave, you will see a lotus basin, in which the 'pure' water from the ceiling of the cave is collected. Try to collect some water in the palm of your hand. It is (it is said) drops of very precious water. You can also take from the pond. The fact that in this part of Vietnam in Lang Son province there are caves due to the limestone of the karst mountains. It is a very calm and peaceful place to visit and also makes for beautiful photos."


Let's start the party..............

          The Tam Thanh Cave - is located about 2 km west of the town of Lang Son (45,000 inhabitants), which is a thriving town, surrounded by karst mountains. The area is mainly inhabited by groups such as Tho, Nung, Man and Dzao. The surroundings of Lang Son are 3 caves: Nhat Thanh, Nhi Thanh and Tam Thanh. The most famous is Tam Thanh Cave.
It is very easy to get from the city center in Lang Son to the Tam Thanh cave. You can choose to go by taxi or motorbike. From Hanoi to Lang Son you take a taxi, which is handy. In Lang Son you can then rent a motorbike to travel to Mau Son (2 km) which is very close to the Tam Thanh Caves.

The entrance can be reached after 30 steps and is about 8 meters high. The cave is hidden between the bushes against the sun. At the entrance of the cave is also a poem engraved poem about the beauty of nature and the soft murmur of the stream. It was engraved in the 18th century by the scholar Ng Thi Si (1726-1780), then Governor of Lang Son. After 100 m the cave widens into a huge hall with very white stalactites, in various shapes.
Almost magically you suddenly stand before a stone throne in the shape of a blooming water lily. On this throne is a statue of Confucius, surrounded by that of Buddha on the left, and that of Lao-tzu on the right.

 

There are about 200 steps in the cave and the path goes up and down. At the top of the cave you get a wide view over a picturesque valley. Along the way you will see a lotus basin, which collects the 'pure' water from the ceiling of the cave. Extend your palm to receive your own drops of this precious water. You can also take the water out of the container. It is a very peaceful and peaceful place to visit and makes for great photos too.
In the cave is the Tam Thanh Pagoda with a Buddha statue. If you visit this pagoda on the 15th day of the first lunar month, you will have the chance to participate in the Tam Thanh Pagoda festival with rituals and traditional religious customs of the inhabitants.


Inside the Cave


 

According to the first cave story, any sound made inside the cave would be reflected in three echoes (Tam Thanh: three Voices).
A second story tells of a man named Diu Tin, who is said to have worshiped three statues from Taoism in the cave.
