IMG_3716.jpg

下龍灣的島嶼當中,有許多是擁有洞穴的。除了最大的木樁洞,驚訝洞是下龍灣行程的熱門參觀景點。我們在大雨中被召集,穿上輕便雨衣、登上小船,就被送往驚訝洞所在的小島。到了碼頭,遊客超多,一片混亂,導遊帶著各自的遊客往驚訝洞裡去。驚訝洞的入口小,內有兩大室,參觀路線只有一條、單向、呈U型。我們開始時還跟著擠,慢慢地落隊了,成了最後歸隊的幾個。參觀過不同的岩洞,驚訝洞不是最大,但亦有它的風采。因為只帶了28-300mm的鏡頭,全集照片就少了廣角才能拍出來的氣派。

There are a lot of natural caves at Halong Bay. The largest one is Hang Đầu Gỗ (Wooden Stakes Cave), but where we visited is Hang Sửng Sốt (Amazing Cave). This cave is located on Bo Hon Island with a small entrance from cliff and two large chambers. Our guide brought us to Bo Hon Island in heavy rain. After enter Amazing Cave, we could luckly keep us most of the time dry and start to make photos. Although we have visited many Karst caves, Amazing Cave still can surprise us with its beauty.

Timeline of geologic evolution (From: wikipedia)
Some of the most remarkable geological events in Hạ Long Bay’s history have occurred in the last 1,000 years, include the advance of the sea, the raising of the bay area, strong erosion that has formed coral, and, pure blue and heavily salted water. This process of erosion by seawater has deeply engraved the stone, contributing to its fantastic beauty. Present-day Hạ Long Bay is the result of this long process of geological evolution that has been influenced by so many factors.
Due to all these factors, tourists visiting Hạ Long Bay are not only treated to one of the natural wonders of the world, but also to a precious geological museum that has been naturally preserved in the open air for the last 300 million years.
