Early in the morning, you’ll be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the stunning landscape of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Hidden deep within the wild mountains are networks of extensive caves, caverns, and tunnels waiting to be explored.
Your first cave of the day is the park’s namesake, Phong Nha Cave. This vast cavern has been carved by the Son River which you’ll cruise up to reach the entrance of the cave. Inside, you’ll continue the journey for just under a mile, passing underneath beautiful stalactites.
After returning from Phong Nha Cave, you’ll have lunch in a local restaurant specializing in local dishes. Once you are full and have taken a rest, an electric car will pick you up to take you to the aptly named Paradise Cave. Enjoy the quiet of the electric vehicle as you delve into the park.
Paradise Cave is one of the park’s most astounding natural wonders. Visitors can wander through over a mile of the 19-mile (31-km) long cave. You’ll be amazed at the natural formations growing in every direction. Once you’re finished admiring the cave, you’ll get a ride back to your hotel.
Attractions VisitedPhong Nha Cave
Phong Nha Cave is the most popular of over 300 caves and grottoes permeating the rugged landscape of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. It was first discovered in the 16th century by local Cham people and was the first cave to be opened to tourists in 1995. Its magical river entrance, dripping stalactite ceilings and historic importance during the Vietnam War have enchanted visitors ever since.
Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park
Phong Nha has jungle and a terrain characterized by limestone and karst. This porous material makes it possible for subterranean rivers to form caves. Visitors come here for an off-the-beaten-path adventure in central Vietnam.
Thien Duong Cave
Wandering through the vast caverns of Thien Duong Cave, it isn’t difficult to see how it earned the moniker of “Paradise Cave.” Unique stalactites and stalagmites embellish every surface in a rainbow of hues, some gigantic and some tiny. Complicated towers reach up to the ceiling and rimstone pools form terraces along the cave floor. Thien Duong Cave is a true marvel of nature.
