Vietnam’s subterranean world

The UNESCO-listed Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park offers travellers the most spectacular subterranean exploration on the planet.

It is home to an expansive 104-km network of caves and rivers that wind through 400-million-year-old karst mountains, the oldest in Asia. The Hang Son Doong Cave, the largest cave in the world, has sections large enough to accommodate a 40-storey building and the Phong Nha Cave stretches over 44.5 km. A three-day excursion reveals this astonishing location – both above and below the ground.

This exceptional adventure touches the inner soul of amazing Asia. Visitors have abundant leisure opportunities, such as trekking through deep rain forests, biking across challenging mountain tracks, and exploration of wide-ranging flora and fauna.

Besides immersion into a mystical underground world, on foot and by boat, the itinerary includes a night spent camping at the mouth of a cave, swimming in pristine waterfall rock pools, kayaking along meandering rivers and hiking lush trails that traverse an idyllic jungle.

This is all enhanced through grass-roots knowledge shared by the local people. Keen conservationists in their own right, they will guide tourists along the way and exhibit a responsible tourism approach that helps to protect and preserve this 885 sq-km sanctuary between the border with Laos and the East Vietnam Sea.

Their responsibility ensures a better future for native wildlife, including the Clouded Leopard and the Asiatic Black Bear, plus 314 bird and 2,700 plant species. This new excursion celebrates the diversity of nature and a record-breaking natural wonder.
