About Travel to Phong Nha
The main attraction in Phong Nha is the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, which is an increasingly popular, but distinctly underdeveloped, tourist attraction.
Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park
The Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park covers an area of 857.54 square kilometres within a larger area of limestone hills covering over 2,000 square kilometres. Some of the hills are steep sided and spectacular, with great walking trails, campsites and rivers good for kayaking within the park itself. The main attractions, however, lies under in these hills. The Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park has over 300 caves, including one which is generally regarded as the largest cave in the world.
Caves to Visit
The most notable parts of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park are:
- Son Doong: The world’s largest cave 200 metres high and 150 metres high in the main chamber. It’s an adventure to reach the cave itself which takes more than one day of trekking.
- Tu Lan: A cave system with a series of partially submerged tunnels to explore with a guide.
- Hang Va: Cave with fantastic stalagmites and rock pools underneath.
- Hang En: It’s a full day trek to reach this cave, which is the third largest in the world. Camping overnight near the entrance to the cave is a popular activity with large number of nesting swifts flying in and out of the cave at the sunset and sunrise.
