Tour Description:

Have you ever wished there are more than 24 hours in a day? We share the sentiment and bring you a full day’s experience with all kinds of exploration you could ever wish for in a trekking journey. Enjoy an exciting journey uphill while clearing the challenging terrain as you train yourself to adapt to unfamiliar terrain, explore new places and experience another side to jungle trekking.

First, we will head over to Tan Hoa Office from Phong Nha. This one and a half hour drive will offer you plenty of chances to admire the beautiful jungle and field that we drive past. It is a stark contrast to the city scenery and provides a fresh look of Vietnam - a side not seen by everybody. Our journey there also includes driving along the historic and meandering Da Deo pass. So buckle up and experience the long winding road to the office to your satisfaction. Upon your arrival, you will sign your Release Form and collect your equipment for the trek. Once you finish gearing up, we will drive you to the trailhead to start your exciting day. Drink up and ready yourself as it is going to be a memorable one.

At around 10 A.M., the trek will start properly. It starts with a forest hike over a hill - with a twist. The first terrain feels familiar and easily manageable but soon you will find yourself treading a whole different terrain. Nearing the end of the trek and close to the cave, the ground turns rocky and full of boulders. But do not give up now, because you are literally only one more kilometre to go. Just a few distances away from the cave, we will stop for some delicious BBQ feast. We are talking about fresh pork and traditional spring roll wraps on the menu, both cooked to perfection for your enjoyment. With a full tummy and recharged mind, it is time to explore the cave!

The cave itself is the culmination of years and years of sedimentation and slow formation. Rock formations fill the cave floor and rise up proud. Occasionally you will see some small cave shafts and sunlight coming down from the shafts illuminating the cave as well. Soon, you will encounter a ladder leading up to the second section of the cave where you will be able to venture to the second section of the cave or the high chamber. Once you are there, the exit lies just ahead!

Now that you have made it, snap your camera away and take some scenic photos for the memory. If you wish to, you can also take a victory dip in the natural jungle pool once you return to the entrance. Rejuvenate yourself by also helping yourself to some coffee once you get out of the cave. Afterwards, we will head to the pickup point and then make our way back to Tan Hoa Office. You can refresh yourself there with a shower before we head back to Phong Nha and conclude the tour.
