I had a trip to Vietnam and planned to visit Sapa. Then I booked this trek after hearing from other travelers that Sapa was wet, busy and had lots of construction going on. Spending 3 days in forest was so amazing and awesome. I do hope to back to Tu Lan in one day.

I did the Tu Lan Cave 3 day tour. Luckily I had the discount price when booking in time. The tour was very well structured and organized. The food was perfect and you felt safe during the trekking all the time. For me it was the first time so I had no experiences and the tour guides helped me so much.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The hike to Tu Lan cave was absolutely stunning. We had a small group of 5, with 2 guides and friendly porters, they were so kind and helpful. They knew this was the first time of me, so they helped me so much to get over the dangerous parts. If you're up for an adventure this is for you!
