Tham Nam Caves have wowed visitors who make the journey with its magnificent features
and stunning sights.
The caves are located inside Pha Chang Limestone Mountain by Nam Non River, Huu
Khuong Commune, Tuong Duong District, Nghe An Province.
Tham Nam’s caves cover thousands of square metres and are filled with unique stalactites
and stalagmites in various shapes. How they look can vary depending on the imagination
Discovering the mysteries of these caves followed by enjoying fish caught fresh
from the river that runs through it, is a delightful experience for those who visit
However, not many locals realise its value in terms of culture and tourism partly
because of its geographical location. Many years ago, the journey would take about
a week, forcing those brave enough cross the Nam Non River and then over 150 waterfalls
and rapids, trekking their way through jungles to get there. But nowadays, it’s
easy to get to Tham Nam.
Civilians said that they have found many ancient artifacts there such as daggers
and statues of female dancers. There are places inside the caves which have enough
space for hundreds of people to relax and enjoy fascinating cave formations developed
over thousands of years and sparkling quartz scattered all over the caves roof.
There is also a stream running through the cave with cool, clean water that has
an abundance of shrimp and fish.
In the past, several cultural activities were often held in Tham Nam and other neighbouring
caves. However, these activities are no longer organised and the caves remain rarely
Vi Tan Hoi, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Tuong Duong District shared,
“In the near future, Tham Nam will be an attractive and enchanting destination for
tourists. They will have an unforgettable experience.”
