Hang En Cave Overnight Trek, Phong Nha-Ke Bang

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! You'll begin your incredible trek in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park up steep jungle hills, wade through cool rivers and streams, to reach Ban Doong Minority Village where you’ll feast on a picnic lunch. Then you’ll plunge back into the jungle, making your way through rich primary forest until Hang En Cave appears on the horizon. The world's third largest cave, Hang En is fast becoming one of Vietnam's must-visit sights. 

You’ll enter the cave in the afternoon, and take a quick rest as the porter team sets up the campsite on the river beach within the cave. For the next few hours, you’ll take a thrilling walk through the cave to its breath-taking exit, a scene made famous in the film 'Pan'. Return to the campsite via a viewpoint high above the camp for an unforgettable photo opportunity, and the chance to seek out million-year-old fossils. Return to camp where you can swim in the natural pools before savouring a sizzling dinner by the campfire. In the morning, you’ll depart the cave and start trekking back down to Phong Nha, which you’ll reach in the late afternoon. 

This experience is only suitable for visitors with strong fitness levels, as it is physically demanding and covers around 22km of trekking across the two days. Some scrambling over rocks will require use of your hands and you must be able to swim. Please note this is a shared tour and you will be travelling with 10-12 other guests.

The simple memory of eating a bowl of Pho whilst watching the sunset in Halong Bay is one of my fondest from my time living in Vietnam. The wonderful warm people, incredible nature and fantastic food of Vietnam will always keep me coming back.
