Dong Tien Lake – Halong Bay Kayaking
Due to the special values of geology, geomorphology and the history of Halong Bay, up to now, Dong Tien Lake is only available for ecological environmental education classes.
Dong Tien Lake is one of the most beautiful caves on Halong Bay. Due to the special values of geology, geomorphology and the history of Halong Bay, up to now, Dong Tien Lake is only for ecological environmental education classes (Ecoboat) and researchers to find understand.
Dong Tien Lake has a typical terraced cave-like structure, with the cave’s bottom not much higher than the sea level, even the entrance at the entrance of the cave is still flooded, so the way to the entrance must be elevated.
How Beautiful Dong Tien Lake
Different from all other caves in Halong Bay, in Dong Tien Lake cave, there are relics of many cave floors hanging by the wall, in the form of stretching “attics”. According to scientists, these are parts of the cavernous floor that is relatively solidly structured with CaCO3, but the ground has been eroded by the underground currents that have appeared in the cave over thousands of years.
Also according to scientists, if you study in detail the remnants of the cave floor, you can find out in detail the rising and falling progress of the Halong sea level in the fourth century (lasting about 2 million – 1, 6 million years ago). That has great implications for the restoration of the geological history of the area. In the cave, there are many stalactites in the form of columns that hang down to the current base, which is the basis to predict that under the present foundation there is an ancient cave floor, and there are many stalagmites growing to support the stalactites on. However, the lower half of the cave is still filled with sediments. It is an unexplored mystery.
From the second compartment of Dong Tien Lake cave, there are two doors to a lake, surrounded by limestone mountains. This type of lake is called an aquarium. In essence, this is a karst funnel whose bottom is flooded. It is a special kind of ecological environment, both isolated and circulating with the sea through the system of underground caves and fissures in limestone. Therefore, there is a unique biological system in the beds, which may include many endemic species.
The authorities did not allow visitors to enter the cave like other caves in the bay, helping the stalactites in the cave maintain a natural state. The stalactites here show off their mysterious glitter. Millions of calcite crystals miraculously glow when a light shines on. That is in the exploited caves such as Sung Sot, Thien Cung, Dau Go never
