Prehistoric tombs and artifacts which date back 10,000 years have been found in Vietnam’s Con Moong Cave.

After excavation, archaeologists have demonstrated that Con Moong represents the cultural developments associated with many stages of development of ancient Vietnamese in more than ten thousand years (from 18,000 to 7,000 BC).

The highlight of the cave is that all stratas have the traces of the continuous development of human history, from the Old Stone Age to the Neolithic, from hunting and gathering to farming, before the Son Vi to the Son Vi, Hoa Binh culture and Bac Son and Da But cultures.

Con Moong is located on a mountain cliff, around 100m from the mountain foot. The cave is about 40m long. The cave ceiling is over 10 meters high at some places.
