Trip Descriptions:
Son Doong, a cave belongs to the Phong Nha-Ke Bang grotto system in central Quang Binh Province, has been discovered to be the biggest in the world. Son Doong cave, discovered by a local 18 years ago, is more than 200 meters wide, 150 meters high, and at least 6.5 kilometers long, though the explorers said they were unable to explore it fully. British explorers have recently discovered that Son Doong is much larger than the world’s biggest known cave. Son Doong is much larger than Deer Cave in Malaysia, currently considered the world’s largest, an explorer said (Deer is 90 meters wide, 100 meters high and 2 kilometers long). The Son Doong cave has replaced to take pole position as the world’s largest cave.
Trip Details:

MapHighlights:
    •    Trek through the magnificent Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, home to one of the world's two largest karst regions
    •    Descend a 262-foot vertical drop into the world’s largest cave - in complete safety
    •    Spend time in Vietnam’s Garden of Eden, the world’s largest jungle within the cave
    •    Explore a newly-discovered passage that houses 300,000,000-year-old fossils

Day 01: Phong Nha
Arrive in Phong Nha village, just north of Hue, nestled into the foothills of limestone cliffs that have been carved over millennia. Sit through a safety briefing for your upcoming adventure this evening, and spend the rest of your night at a local Phong Nha Hotel.

Day 02: Phong Nha Ke Bang

Depart this morning for Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll be taken to a drop-off point 35 km inside the park’s lush forestland. From here, you’ll descend into the river valley - catch a glimpse of daily life in a minority village as you pass it by - and trek 6 km to arrive at the camp inside Hang En. Get settled into your lush natural surroundings, and learn about the park from your expert guide. Tonight, let the forest sing you to sleep.

Day 03: Phong Nha Ke BangSon Dong
Wake up with the sunrise, and take in a deep breath of the fresh, jungle air. You’ll start your day by traveling through an enormous cave. From here, you’ll trace the river through the jungle to the entrance of Hang Son Doong: currently the largest-known cave in the world. Marvel at its immensity as you descend a 262-foot vertical drop (your expert cave guides will be at your foremost assistance), which will bring you to the cave’s first huge passage. From here, you’ll cross the underground river and find yourself in the cave’s incredible main tunnel. Check out the aptly-named giant stalactite formation, Hand of Dog, and set up camp close to the first underground doline, a sinkhole that collects the rainwater running off the ground surface.

Day 04: Phong Nha Ke Bang

Wake up inside the massive cave, and get ready for more caving adventures. You’ll pass immense boulders, which are straddled by cliffs over 600 feet high, towards the first doline. Here, the collapsed roof has allowed the world’s largest jungle within a cave to form - also known as the Garden of Eden. From here, you’ll set up camp at Beach Camp, which provides stunning panoramas of the magical jungle. Catch glimpses and hear the call of monkeys, hornbills, and flying foxes.

Day 05: Phong Nha Ke Bang

Today you’ll travel even deeper into this incredible cave, making your way to the Great Wall of Vietnam. Water levels will determine whether a boat is necessary to make the journey from here. You’ll return to your first night’s campsite, near the first doline. Your guide will take you to a newly-discovered passage that contains fossils dating back a jaw-dropping 300,000,000 years.Son Dong Cave

Day 06: Phong Nha Ke Bang
Today is your last day in the otherworldly landscape of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park - breathe it in, and make memories that will last a lifetime! Celebrate the final night of your adventure with your porter team. Sleep amidst the jungle flora and fauna in Hang En.

Day 07: Phong Nha

Today you’ll make the trek back to Phong Nha, where you’ll check in once again to a local hotel. Enjoy a second celebration back in town. You may either depart this evening by bus or train from Dong Hoi, or check out tomorrow morning.

About Hang So
n Đoòng
Son Doong cave (in Vietnamese: Hang S
ơn Đoòng, meaning Mountain River Cave) is a cave in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh P
rovince, Vietnam. The cave is located near the Laos-Vietnam border ( 17°Son Dong Cave - www.LuxuryPrivateTour.com27'25.88"N 106°17'15.36"E). It has a large fast-flowing underground river inside. The cave was found by a local man named H-Khanh in 1991. The local jungle men were afraid of the cave for the whistling sound it makes from the underground river. However, not until 2009 was it made known to the public when a group of British scientists from the British Cave Research Association, led by Howard and Deb Limbert, conducted a survey in Phong Nha-Ke Bang from April 10-14, 2009. Their progress was stopped by a large calcite wall. According to Limbert, this cave is five times larger than the Phong Nha cave, previously considered the biggest cave in Vietnam. The biggest chamber of Son Doong is over five kilometers in length, 200 meters high and 150 meters wide. With these dimensions, Son Doong overtakes Deer Cave in Malaysia to take the title of the world's largest cave.
