A new system of grottos which is of great tourism potential has recently been discovered in the basin of the Serepok River, one of the largest rivers in Vietnam’s Central Highlands.
Culture officials of Dak Nong Province have found some dozen grottos in the basin section of the Serepok River in Krong No District during their recent field survey.
According to provincial researchers, the grottos, of various sizes and shapes, were formed by a volcanic eruption and span a total length of some 25km from the volcano near Choar Village to Dray Sap Waterfall.
One among the system is the grotto near Dray Sap Waterfall. The cave measures roughly 200m in length and 2m in height.
Another striking grotto, approximately 3km from the waterfall, is about 15m wide.
Around 50km into the grotto, there are two branches, each of which is almost 300m long and 6m high.
It is quite easy to go around within this grotto.
Another grotto, about 30km from Dray Sap Waterfall, measures 8m in width, 200m in length and 10m in height.
However, the stratum of solidified lava above is mostly pumice and thus is not sturdy enough. It is not easy to get around either.
The newly found grottos, which are set against the background of gorgeous pristine forests and waterfalls, promise to appeal to tourists.
