It's been 60 years since Muong Tinh Cave sheltered revolutionaries from french colonists but the cave remains quite the same. It has 3 main compartments. Go through a narrow door, you will get into the outer most compartment with an area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout 600m2, an average height of 20m. In this chamber, there is not many shapes but the highlight is a fairly large space with the flat ground.
To get into the 2nd chamber, you must crawl through a tunnel of natural stone walls. This compartment is quite narrow with an area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout 20m2, surrounded by stone walls with small chambers, deep in the mountains is the hiding places of the revolutionary document. With the ingenuity, nature created a system of beds and tables of stone which is very reasonable. And around it, there are shapes of such animals as the dog, the birds, the squirrels... looked very cute. This is both a secret place and a room to ensure safety when events happen. There is a small road upto the mountain peak, the soldiers can thus emerge out to the forest, to avoid detection by the enemy.
The 3rd compartment is the most favored creation with stalactites hanging from high above, the sparkling, iridescent stone blinds. Historically, this cave was where our weapons and food were hidden. The room for hidden weapons is of about 30m2 for the first Dien Bien guerrilla offensive in 1953. And this was also a place to relax and rest of the revolutionary soldiers after each battle.
Come to Muong Tinh Cave, tourists will not only return with proud to history of the nation but also admire a beautiful cave, fresh air, nestled in the majestic limestone. In the morning, visitors will seemingly be watching a romantic water-color painting of the nature with the intermittent peaks, hidden in magical mist, looming clouds. But when the fog is clear, clouds are over, it will reveal the blue sky and the mountains that proudly sheltered the liberation army in the old days..
