DISCOVERY CAVE TOURS | PHONG NHA | VIETNAM TRAVEL VLOG
DAY 68 – WE TAKE A CAVE TOUR OF PARADISE CAVE AND THE DARK CAVE IN PHONG NHA NATIONAL PARK VIETNAM
Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is known for its caves! Paul and I took a all day tour with Discovery Tours to see what Phong Nha had to offer. We fed monkeys, explored caves (even in the dark!), and zip lined. Below I will give more details about our tour! enjoy!
OUR TOUR –
Our tour bus picked us up early morning to our first stop, the Botanical Gardens. There we were able to feed monkeys (don’t forget to bring some bananas!) and take a short hike to a gorgeous waterfall.
Next on our list is Paradise Cave! Paradise Cave was discovered in 2005, and open to the public in 2010. Because the cave is still relatively new, it was surprisingly very well done. The wooden stairs that lead down into the cave lower you to the caves floors. There you can walk through and see all the beauty within. Trust me when I say this cave truly deserves its name!
Our next, and final, destination, is one of the most popular and adventurous of the caves Phong Nha has to offer. The Dark Cave. The Dark Cave is 5,258 meters long and 83 meters high. There is a beautiful river running into its mouth and is surrounded by a breathtaking jungle treeline. There are two ways to enter the cave, you can either zip line from the lighthouse into the caves mouth, or kayak. As you enter the cave the light immediately begins to retreat, which is why they provide everyone with a helmet and a headlamp. Hiking through the narrow sections of the cave barefoot and in the dark was quite the experience, and we were rewarded with a mud bath at the end of the cave. As you trek back the the mouth of the cave you are able to wash off all the excess mud and hop in a kayak to their water sports and zip line facilities.
