Photographer's Note

The Cave of Stakes (Wooden Stakes Cave / Hang Dau Go) is the name given to this cave by the Vietnamese. In the 13th century, one Tran dynasty general used to hide many wooden stakes in the cave to wreck the Northern invaders’ warships. (Chinese)

To the French, it was known as the Cave of Marvels or Grotte des Merveilles. The cave is in Ha Long Bay, a spectacular area of karst formations in the sea.
