  • Day 3: Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park (B/L)
    • Phong Nha­Ke Bang is one of the largest National Parks in Vietnam. Home to a huge amount of wildlife, breathtaking scenery, crystal clear rivers and immense cave systems. A documentary by National Geographic has given this area much attention with the discovery of the world’s largest cave, Son Doong, here in the early 1990’s. Our first stop is Eight Lady Cave. The site where eight women who were working on Route 20 highway died from a bomb attack that caused a massive rock to seal off the exit trapping them inside. We then move to Paradise Cave, one of the most beautiful caves in Phong Nha National Park with more than 30-Km cave system of hundreds incredible rock formations.
      After lunch we visit the awesome Dark Cave by zipline or for the slightly less adventurous, kayaks. With only a head torch for light, we navigate our way in the darkness to the mud baths. Soak up in the goodness and be left with baby­smooth skin and what’s a mud bath without a classic mud fight! Afterwards take a refreshing dip in the lake and wash all the mud away.
