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 probably the world’s 3rd largest cave and is quickly becoming 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’ll examine fascinating fossils in one part of the cave over 300 million years old, and around every corner be subjected to 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!
