Am phu cave "The Hell"
This “Hell Cave” is one of the largest caves in Da Nang. People tried many times in the past to measure how big it is, but soon gave up. Local people think that the spring in its bottom is connected with the sea. Served as a hiding place of Vietcong during the American war, its entrance was covered by bombing but later opened. Buddhist concept about life of people after death is depicted here, and that’s really awesome to hear from the guide.
