Itineraries

Day 1: Phong Nha - Ban Doong Village - Hang En

Start your ultimate adventure with a pickup from your hotel in Phong Nha between 8:00 am and 8:30 am and short transfer to Oxalis Headquarters.
Learn all about safety and collect your gear before driving 45mins through the National Park to reach the trailhead.
A steep jungle hill starts the adventure, with a refreshing river at the bottom. Hike through rich jungle to reach the Ban Doong minority village, where a hot cup of tea welcomes you.
Lunch takes place shortly after near the river, and then it’s back into the jungle, through river streams, and across the river valley until Hang En lays on the horizon.
Enter the cave around 3 PM, and enjoy your afternoon swimming, before a sizzling BBQ dinner is served, complete with rice wine and beautiful flocks of swifts overhead.

Day 2: Hang En - Hang Lanh - Phong Nha

Awake at 8:00 am for breakfast and pack up your belongings. Depart camp at 9:00 am to leave Hang En. Take one last look at the entrance, almost hidden among the jungle and then trek 1 km along a riverside path with several river crossings and upstream to Hang Lanh entrance. Arrive around 10 am, and spend the next two hours exploring the first km of Hang Lanh, which has earned the name “Cold Cave” for a reason!

One of the most memorable hikes and camps in life. My wife and I were amazed by the patience and enthusiasm of the staff and guides. We knew this would be interesting, but didn't know this cave was large and majestic like that. This was not a walk in the park. This was totally a damn good challenge, we had 2 days trekking and we recognized how brave we are.

2 days and 1 night trip in Hang En cave was so wonderful. I think this is the best trekking trip I ever had in my life. The tour was well organized, and all in safe. The views were so breathtaking, and the food was very nice too. But remember that you must stay with the guides and group all the time.

Wow, what a meaningful trip! If you are wondering where you should book this tour or not, you absolutely should. I had a wonderful, adventurous and beautiful way to experience Vietnam in Hang En. Our trip leader was so nice, and he confidently led us through muddy trails and chilly cave waters to see some amazing sights.

The trip is worth penny! My husband and I went on the 3 day exploring Hang En, Quang Binh. It was a trip of a lifetime! We had the opportunity to experience an area of Vietnam that has barely been touched by tourism. Our team were so great, every aspect of the trip was well organized. The scenery was beautiful, the staff was friendly and professional, and the food was amazing.
