Hang Thẩm Tét Tòong (Tham Tet Toong Cave) has a weird name, as it contains the word cave actually twice. Hang is the vietnamese word for cave, tham is the thai word for cave. So the cave is actually named Tét Tòong.

This cave was recently transformed into a show cave vietnames style. They actually built a narrow path to the entrance. The path may be slippery when wet, and the walk to the cave is part of the fun. The cave has a waterfall inside and a turquise pool in front of the entrance. As far as we know there are no concrete trails or electric light, so wear good shoes and bring a torch.
