Da Bac Cave is truly a creative masterpiece of art, a subtle combination of sculpture and painting, between majesty and grace. Da Bac is located not far from Xuan Mai town, Lien Son commune nowadays, Luong Son district, Hoa Binh province.

Da Bac Cave is also known as Fairy Cave.

Folk legends in the region said that, in ancient times, the fairy in the heaven felt bored of the scene of the fairyland. One day they decided to down to the earth to witness the beauty of this land. The beautiful scene under the sky made them passionate and lost to the Lien Son Da Bac cave. The beauty of the cave makes the fairies surprised. The stalactites shimmered, the curved arches undulated curve. All of these things kept them feet, they didn’t want to return to the heaven again. Ngoc Hoang was angry and closed the sky door letting the fairies on the earth. Year after year, the fairies have been transformed into cliffs. From then on, Da Bac is also known as Fairy Cave.

Da Bac Cave located in the heart of Pai Day Mountain (also known as Hang Beo Mountain). This mountain looks like a giant frog, half sitting, half jumping. It is 65 meters long, from 4 to 8 meters wide, 1.5 meters to 15 meters high, with many small rooms. The cave entrance is not very large, just before it is the paved road leads visitors deep inside the cave.

Entering the gate, visitors will not avoid the feeling of being overwhelmed by a forest of stalactites loping, each block of white silver, hovering like bunches of flowers are hunched, sometimes look like a chandelier splendidly colored. When the light shine, the rocks suddenly bright up to reflect the blue, red, purple, yellow light. From here, follow the paved road inside the cave about 6 meters up to see a gap that is the way to the Fairy Cave.

The cave is higher than the main platform, nearly 2 meters, climbing 10 steps, visitors will encounter the ceiling with many stalactites hanging down, combining into many bands, soft winding like a velvet curtain. Some stalactites lop and point to many sides, hanging suspended from the ceiling. The magic here is at the foot of the stalactites, the flowing water many years formed two beautiful natural water lake. Inside the lake is a system of miniature terraced fields. The banks of the terraced fields are swallowed, carved to be extremely lively carvings. In the rainy season, water from the stalactites, from the small ceiling to the terraced fields filled with water as if the preparation for the new season.

Going inside the cave, visitors will find the cave shrunk as small and mysterious as the bedroom, the slender stalactites softly falling looks like a wind curtain. Going deeper, there are blocks of stalactites shaped like the yellow iridescent flowers vasts, externally carved delicately and meticulous. In addition, at here nature also shaped blocks of stalactite shaggy like gac, durian, sometimes like beehives hanging, starfruit, etc. Below the cave are dozens to hundreds of stone pillars like rice dunes, golden mountains, silver trees, horned elephant head, rhinoceros head and flowing waterfall.

A little deeper, under the domes is the range of stalactite as being covered by the silver in the middle of the world the strange shapes, both real and virtual for visitors to feel like in the overwhelmed mystical arch heaven. Looking up at the ceiling of the cave, I am shocked to see the lively image. Prominent is the image of fairy on the cliff surface, on the opposite of the cave, the cliff is printed in the shape of a dragon with a flying posture on the water wave. Higher and wider is all the people and visitors come here to admire the beauty of this mountain.

Initially, the door was only a small slit just a person in, after discovering in the cave that there are many beautiful stalactites with many shapes to create interesting imagination, local people have opened the door to enter.

To help the visitors to enjoy the beautiful scene, in recent years, the Management Board has installed lighting system in the cave, repairing, paving the way in the cave. Since the discovery, Da Bac Cave has welcomed many visitors to visit every year.
