EXPLORE CAVING WITH ZIPLINES, KAYAKS, AND GIANT MUD BATHS

  • Tour code: VIG05
  • Duration: 1 Day
Explore the longest dry cave in the world, 200 meters above sea level, and 31kms long, it was only discovered in 2005. You’ll be amazed by its grandeur and sheer number of big beautiful Stalactites and Stalagmites. By a slow accumulation of calcium, the structures grow less that 10cm every one thousand years. Start your afternoon with an adrenaline kick. Zipline from the watchtower, down across the river and into the giant mouth of the cave. Strap on a head lamp, you’re going deep into the darkness of Lady cave. Follow the narrow footpath, knee deep in mud until you reach the giant pool of mud well above your waist. Turn off you headlamps and sit in absolute dark. Climb up out of the mud and have a swim in the massive cavern pool to get all the mud off, then hop into a kayak and make your way back upstream to the start point.

Highlight

  • Visit: Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, Dark cave, 
  • Activities: climb up, swimming ,kayaking, zipping down, walking through the dark

Itinerary

08:45 -You will be picked up at your hotel and transported to Paradise cave - the longest dry cave in Asia (located in Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, the core area of the park is 25kms from Phong Nha or 75kms from the town of Dong Hoi, it takes about 1h20 minutes of driving to arrive there from Dong Hoi).

Once inside the Nation Park the tour does a driven loop through Hwy 20 and The Ho Chi Minh Trail West - these routes that dissect the park were built during the “American War” to get troops and material to the south to help in fighting on the southern side of the DMZ line.

Our guides will give you an enormous amount of information relating to the park, its vegetation, geology and wildlife and also historical and cultural information on the area, on Vietnam, and its people.
