Are you ready for the "Dark Cave & Paradise Cave Experience"!
The magnificent Paradise Cave to experience by walk, and the Dark Cave to get your hands dirty. A combination of two caves you just have to see when visiting Phong Nha!
Dark Cave: Ready for some real adventure? Discover Dark Cave in a way you never discovered a cave before. Reach the entrance by ziplining, kayak your way in and explore the cave itself by foot, swim and more. We’ll save the best part for the end, where we’ll be taking a mud bath in complete darkness. Attach your torchlight to your helmet, and you’re ready to go!
Paradise Cave: If mother nature had a palace, it would be the Paradise Cave in Phong Nha Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park for sure. It waited millions of years to be found and has opened to public in 2010. With a length of 31 km, named as an UNESCO World Heritage Site and holding many fine pieces of natural art, it is simply breath-taking.
The wooden paths will take you all the way to the accessible end of the cave, a little over 1 km. Make sure you camera is charged, as you’ll see countless crystal and shiny stalactites and stalagmites pass by. Many have described it as the most unique cave Phong Nha has to offer, so missing out on the surprisingly beautiful Paradise Cave is not an option. Climbing the 500 steps to reach the entrance of the cave will take some effort, but every step will be worth it.
