Nguyen Manh Linh, one of the first Vietnamese explorers, conquered Mount Everest in 2008. We have since modeled our climbing expedition after his passion to deliver our own Vietnamese Everest to those adventurers willing to conquer the Phong Nha national park mountains; albeit a milder terrain that is suitable for those who yearn to conquer and explore.

You will then be taken to Ho Chi Minh Trail West at Km15. Your tour guide will accompany you through vast grass hills to the Dau Rai population. Here, you will immerse yourself among hundreds of massive trees, descend down narrow paths, shimmy around boulders and under low-hanging vines.
You will trek upstream to the rarely visited exit of the Dark cave. Equipped with your safety gear, you will then explore 500m into the mouth of the cave. After your eyes reajust to the sunlight upon coming back out of the cave, you will then trek 2km upstream to the Hang E cave (Water Paradise).
Upon returning to the jungle, the porter team will prepare you a savory barbecue lunch so you can regain your energy and rest up before the second half of your trekking day. You will enjoy salad, fish, pork meat, sticky rice etc.
You will then have time to swim in the cool crystal clear natural spring. Watch as bats swoop in and out of the cave top. Hang E is one of the most picturesque river caves in the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park. Here you can relax and enjoy the nature.
Head back (5km) trekking through the Abandoned Valley. On this portion of the tour you will wade accross streams, cross over natural fallen tree bridges, and sing with the birds as they belt their tropical calls.
