According to a survey of the Center for Conservation of Marine Heritage and Recreation in Ha Long Bay, Thay Cave is about 3m wide, 150m deep. The deeper you go, the lower temperature. Stalactite columns shoot sprouting among the paths make visitors seem to be lost in a stalactites forest. In the middle of the cave there is a small lake filled with water from the source on the top of the mountain that flowing every day. The cave is very large with many stalactites hanging down with diverse shapes. The sun shining in the cave reflected in the blinking natural stalactites, along with the sound of stream make Thay Cave has its own charming.
