Hang En Adventure Cave Camp 2 days 1 night

Come and explore Hang En Cave, located within the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, and spend the night underground in its massive chamber below thousands of darting swifts. Hang En Cave is the world’s third largest cave and has quickly become one of the must-see natural wonders in Vietnam. Its size will blow you away, and our campsite located within the cave beside a lazy river, will leave you speechless. You will examine fascinating fossils dated over 300 million years old in one part of the cave, and around every corner, be subjugated by the most picturesque views.
A stop in the ethnic minority Ban Doong Village, set amongst the limestone mountains is a highlight for many, not to mention the pristine jungle, many river crossings, and jovial porter team made up of local jungle men!

  • Day 1: Phong Nha - Ban Doong Village - Hang En
    • Start your ultimate adventure with a pick-up from your hotel in Phong Nha between 8:00 and 8:30 am, and a short transfer to our office. Learn all about safety, collect your gear, and sign our Release Form before driving 45 minutes through the National Park to reach the trailhead. At 10:00 am, leave the road and enter the jungle.
      A steep jungle hill starts the journey, with a refreshing river at the bottom. Hike through rich primary forest to reach the Ban Doong minority village, where a hot cup of tea welcomes you. Feast on a picnic lunch which takes place shortly afterwards at about 12:30-1:00 pm, near the river. Then it’s back into the jungle, through rivers and streams, and along the river valley until Hang En lays on the horizon.
      Enter Hang En around 3:00 pm, and take a quick rest as the porter team sets up camp on the beach within the cave. For the next couple of hours, complete the adventure by preceding the rest of the way through the cave to the breathtaking exit, a scene made famous in the film Pan. Return to camp through the dry passage to the viewpoint high above camp, where 300 million year-old fossils can be seen. Enjoy your downtime relaxing or swimming in the natural pool before a sizzling grilled dinner is served, complete with rice wine and the sounds of swifts overhead.
