Hang Thung is often called by the people here by the name Tung Set cave. The cave is located at an altitude of about 100m above sea level. From the beginning to the end of the puncture cave, the angle is about 40 degrees. The highest place of the cave ceiling is about 20m, the widest place in the cave is 12m. The reason is called Hang Thung because the whole structure of the cave follows the form of a hole going up. The top "perforated" mouth of the cave is the place where you can stand and gaze out into the distance to see the majestic natural scenery around.

A very special thing in Hang Thung that makes people ecstatic is its unspoiled beauty that is still intact. Because here, tourism activities have not been put into operation. On the way to the foot of Thung Cave, there are many types of terrain for hikers to freely experience: dirt roads, forest roads, huge obstacles are boulders or dangerous obstacles are rocks. sharp cat ears.

2. Ang Dai

The second most interesting destination is a hidden valley with an ancient village named Ang Dai in Gia Luan commune. Similar to Hang Dung, this place is only known by locals, and currently, tourism activities have not reached this place.

In the 40s and 50s of the last century, Ang Dai village was still inhabited, but only about a dozen households. Surrounding the village is a primeval forest with rich vegetation, even with many rare herbs. However, due to difficult living conditions and rugged terrain, the people of Ang Dai village can only take farming as their livelihood.

When the government started to redistribute the boundaries of some communes of Cat Hai island district, the people of Ang Dai village made a migration to another area to live. And now, Ang Dai is just an old village with remnants of thatched houses, a foundation of an old primary school, many abandoned rice fields, but the villagers in Gia Luan Commune still turn around, back to farming for the day.

A journey in Ang Dai valley is a challenging experience. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the wild forest with extremely rich flora and fauna. This is also an opportunity for "biologists" to add to their knowledge base loads of interesting things from a place with such high biodiversity. In addition, to reach the site of the ancient temple in Ang Dai village, hikers also have to climb over a mountainside with many trees. What an unforgettable experience, right?
