On the Peak of Pha Quen Mountain in Thanh Hoa province, local people have discovered a cave with ancient coffins inside. They call it Hang Ma (Cave of Ghost).

To reach the cave, people have to climb along trails for kilometers and finally swing themselves above the steep cliffs… This is a really tough challenge for the climbers who want to explore the Cave of Ghost.

The cave mouth is enough for one person to slip through. Not many local Thai ethnic people dare to visit the cave as they think the cave is the home of ghostsvor divines.

Inside the cave

Inside the cave there are dozens of coffins of various sizes. They are piled up and most of them are rotten. Only several coffins are intact. Due to the impact of time, most of the coffins have no covers.

There are at least two caves with ancient coffins on Pha Quen Mount. Each cave has 30-40 coffins.

Nobody knows who owned the coffins or where they came from. Historical documents did not mention these coffins. There are a lot of human teeth and bones on the cave floors. Experts said these are coffins of the ancient Thai people. Local authorities have asked relevant bodies to conduct research in the cave and the coffins here.
