Fairy Cave is located in Bao Nhai commune, Bac Ha district. It’s 6 km from the center of Bao Nhai commune to the upstream of Chay River. To come to Fairy Cave, visitors will take a boat trip on Chay river. Pristine forests at the both side of the river creat a poetic scenery and a fresh air. Along two sides of the river are high cliffs with diversified forms, this side is elephant leaning to drink cool water and the other is the eagle widely spanning the wings flying into the sky. All those vivid images were entirely created by the hands of Mother Nature from water flowing around crags.
Passing Fairy Stream about 200 meters, visitors will encounter a large cave with a capacity up to hundreds of people as a splendid labyrinth with mysterious shapes, hiding out in the dim light of the cave. Moreover, inside the cave there are huge stalactites as sparkling old towers combined with the cool water create a magnificent setting, an open space.
