Located about 2km far away from the center of Son La commune, Tham Tet Toong Grotto belongs to Chieng An commune, Son La commune, Son La province. Following the way leading to Muong Lat can you see Chieng An commune peacefully locate on provincial high way, behind Chieng Ho and Chieng Phom.

To reach this grotto, travelers have to follow a small foot-way at Chieng An junction which is slippery and wet but really poetic. At one side, wild flowers with many white, pink and colors intersperse with green leaves while at another side, there is a fresh and transparent spring channel flowing.

You can see dragonflies and butterflies flying in almost everywhere. The dragonflies look like the pilots wearing artistry mixed colorful clothes. The small but lovely butterflies have white wings beautifully decorated by various colors and patterns. It is likely that you cannot find two of butterflies which are exactly the same to each other, and neither of them is bigger than a phalange.

Covered around the grotto are green forests with high and continuous mountains. The exit of the grotto is a deep blue lake built with a water filtering system used by local people.

Inside Tham Tet Toong grotto, the scenery is mysterious like a stunning natural picture, somewhere a group of rocks crowd together making a cloud on the cave’s wall, somewhere the stalactite stream runs along looked like a group of bamboo trees. Mixing together, all make up a wild, strange but extremely fascinating Tham Tet Toong.

Every morning, when the sunshine spreads, there is a fantasy world of brilliant colorful various-shaped stalactites waiting for travelers when seeing from the cave entrance.
