8 Ladies Cave

8 Ladies Cave

War martyrs memorial

This cave, which also goes by its Vietnamese name “Hang Tam Co”, is located just past km 16 on Highway 20, part of the Ho Chi Minh trail. Highway 20 was in fact named this because 20 years old was the average age of the youth volunteer force and frontline soldiers during the Vietnamese – American war. The cave pays homage to 8 young ladies and gentlemen who were tragically trapped in the cave during a fall-in after a bomb strike. A temple has been constructed next to the cave as a tribute and place to honor the members of these brave men and women.
