Son Doong CAVE
Son Doong Cave is the world’s largest cave, and what makes it particularly exciting is its obscurity: the cave was only discovered in 2009. This thrilling 7-day mini-expedition includes two nights at a local hotel in the village of Phong Nha, two nights camping in the lush grounds of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, and an incredible three nights camping within Hang Son Doong as well. You’ll be accompanied by a team of 16 – from porters, to safety experts, to guides, who will ensure your utmost safety and fun. All camping gear is provided. Finish the trip off with two nights of adrenaline-fueled celebrations!
This trip is offered as a private excursion; however, for travellers wishing to explore the cave with fellow enthusiasts, set group departures are also available. Please enquire for more details.
The Tu Lan CAVE
Discovered in 2009, is composed of eight caves (and counting) located 70 km northwest of the town of Phong Nha, near Vietnam’s border with Laos. Several caves were discovered just last year, so Tu Lan is still very much a frontier – a rarity in today’s rapidly developing world.
Hang En CAVE
The world’s 3rd largest cave, succeeded only by Deer Cave in Malaysia and Hang Son Doong, also located here in the Cave Kingdom of Vietnam, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. The route to Hang En winds first down a mountain covered in lush jungle, and then across 10 km of an expansive river valley. The mountainous jungle region that you first must conquer is steep and exhilarating. Vines curve around monstrous trees, the mud is slick underfoot, and leaves crunch left and right as nearly invisible critters scurry around the jungle floor. Dew sits delicately atop enormous fern leaves, and birds join with insects to provide a chorus of chirping and humming in the background.
