TOUR DURATION: 3 Days / 2 Nights
Spend three-days and two-nights deep in the remote jungle and caves of Tu Lan, located on the border of Laos, and just 70km North-West of Phong Nha. With an expert English-speaking guide and jungle porter team from the local minority village experience the very best camping and caving adventure in Vietnam.
Our three-day tour is a more difficult trek (up to 18km) with a number of steep inclines over limestone mountain trails.
You will have time to explore almost all of the caves in the area (that we know of) including Tu Lan Cave, Hang Kim and Hang Ken, which was featured as the National Geographic Photograph of the year in 2011. You’ll see many beautiful cave formations, swim through underground rivers and visit spectacular waterfalls inside the caves and surrounding valleys.
With two nights camping in the great outdoors you will have plenty of time to soak in the jungle atmosphere and learn more about the local people of the area. The food is a highlight for many, with an amazing BBQ prepared each evening by our expert jungle men. This is not a walk in the park and is setup as a real jungle adventure. You will swim through caves, traverse wide rivers, and negotiate rocky trails, but it will no doubt be a highlight of your travels in Vietnam.
