Exploring Hang Tien promises unforgettable experiences, including trekking through lush jungles and exploring the depths of caves full of secrets.

The true highlight of exploring Hang Tien is swimming in a natural lake, hailed by many as a refreshing “infinity pool” along the journey. This pool can be found when you reach the Hang Tien campsite, where there is a stopover on the Hang Tien Endeavor Tour and Hang Tien Exploration Tour operated by Oxalis.

How Was Hang Tien Cave’s Infinity Pool Naturally Created?

Hang Tien Cave’s infinity pool is connected to an underground river originating from Tu Lan. This pool is similar in length and width to a typical swimming pool, offering a refreshing break from the trek for weary adventurers.

Geologically, Hang Tien Cave’s infinity pool is a testament to the power of nature. It owes its existence to thousands of years of water erosion within the cave system. As groundwater infiltrates the cave, it seeps through cracks in the limestone, dissolving soluble rock along its path. This process has shaped a unique feature over time.

The infinity pool at Hang Tien Cave is the result of thousands of years of water erosion in the cave system.

Over time, this dissolved rock accumulates, carving out cavernous spaces and shaping the subterranean landscape. Eventually, the water flows out of the cave, forming a serene pool where travelers can unwind and cool off.

Interestingly, the infinity pool isn’t situated directly within Hang Tien Cave itself but is instead found along the route of trekking to Hang Tien outside a vertical limestone cliff.

This adds to the allure of Hang Tien, offering glimpses of the intricate interconnectedness of the region’s underground waterways and highlighting the geological diversity present within the Tu Lan Cave System.
