This is one of our favourite spots in the whole of Vietnam. The national park of Phong Nha Ke Bang, one of the world's two largest karst regions,
with hundreds of caves set in primary tropical forest, is still relatively untouched by mainstream tourism.
The scenery of the park is stunning with its limestone peaks and lush
forest, but the caves are just awe-inspiring. Imagine a cave big enough for a jumbo jet to fly through, and you start to get an idea of the scale.
The area is now quite accessible with the regional airport of Dong Hoi close by, with flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and road/rail links.
What to see, what to do?
We can arrange adventures into the park, and into the caves, encompassing:
- Full-day guided trips accessible to anybody
- Two day/one night treks through minority villages, with overnight stays in Hang En or Tu Lan Caves - these trips require a reasonable level of fitness
- Full-on multi day expeditions into the depths of Son Doong, the biggest cave in the world
Aside from the caves, the national park can offer much in the way of fauna and flora - a day tour of the National Park is a great way to experience the beauty of it.
