 The most impressive thing about Tien Cave is its stalagmitic stairs right at its entrance. Sunlight allows the area near the entrance to have a great biodiversity.

 The cave's name means "fairy" in Vietnamese and comes from a legend that its beauty charmed fairies, who refused to leave the cave once they came here. Local people consider the cave as a holy site and have reportedly organized important religious events here.
