We’ve reached the absolutely massive mouth of the remote Pygmy Cave. Information about the caves in the region can be hard to come by, but some say this is the 4th largest cave in the world! Local ethic minority tribes have known about the cave since 1997, and they’ve left behind some less than safe bamboo ladders and scaffolding they used to reach the swallow nests high above the ground. When the cave was discovered by the outside world (sometime around 2015?), collecting swallow eggs/chicks was banned by the Vietnamese government. Now the unused ladders dangle high above, quickly decaying. Since it’s discovery by the the outside world, fewer people have been here than summit of Mount Everest.
We arrive to find a lake where our campsite should be. Water flows into the cave from all directions - from the valley, misty waterfalls from the cliffs above the cave, a massive waterfall spouting right out of the cave ceiling, and a hole in the wall of the cave powerfully ejecting water like a giant fire hydrant. It’s a spectacular scene of nature’s power. Unfortunately for us, with our campsite underwater, we have to find somewhere else to sleep…and nowhere in sight is looking hospitable. With the flooded valley behind us, turning back is not an option.
