Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is one of the most spectacular wilderness sites in South East Asia and one of the 2 largest limestone regions in the world. 

Destined to become one of Vietnam’s major tourist attractions, this beautiful and little explored region contains the world’s longest river cave, Hang Ke Ry and what is believed to be the world’s largest cave, Hang Son Doong Cave (discovered in 2009 and recently explored by a British caving team). A vast network of underground caves and passages can be found, along with awesome jungle scenery and fascinating rock formations. 

Visit one of the wonders of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Paradise Cave, with its spectacular and magical beauty, opened to the public in December 2011. According to the British Royal Cave Association, at 31.4 km this is the longest, dry cave in Asia. 

Still in the Park but nearer the village, beautiful Phong Nha Cave, lit up like a psychedelic rock concert, is easily accessible from the farmstay and ranks among the most popular tourist destinations in Vietnam. This and many other of the caves in the area were used as hospitals, bomb shelters and ammunition depots during the American war. 

The Park’s 2000 kilometres of sprawling vegetation is an ideal habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals unique to the region including the highest diversity of primates in South East Asia. 

Wild and exciting… but at the same time, the experience of this captivating scenic beauty leaves you with a sense of tranquillity.

Son Doong Cave - Overview

Son Doong cave(Vietnamese: Hang Son Doong) is world's largest cave, located in Son Trach, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh province, Vietnam. It is found by a local man named Ho Khanh in 1991 and was recently discovered in 2009 by British cavers, led by Howard Limbert. The name "Son Doong" cave means "mountain river cave", It was created 2-5 million years ago by river water eroding away the limestone underneath the mountain Where the limestone was weak, the ceiling collapsed creating huge skylights. Son Doong cave is more than 200 meters wide, 150 meters high, and approx 9 kilometers long, with caverns big enough to fit an entire city street inside them, twice as large as Deer Cave in Malaysia (currently considered the world's largest with 90 meters wide, 100 meters high and 2 kilometers long). Son Doong cave was classified as the largest cave in the world by BCRA (British Cave Research Association) and selected as one of the most beautiful in the globe by the BBC news.

Son Doong cave is hidden in rugged Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province near the border with Laos, the cave is part of a network of 150 or so caves, many still not surveyed, in the Annamite Mountains. It is very difficult to travers. During the first expedition, the team explored two and a half miles of Son Doong cave before a 200-foot wall of muddy calcite stopped them. They named it the Great Wall of Vietnam. Above it they could make out an open space and traces of light, but they had no idea what lay on the other side. A year later, they have returned—seven hard-core British cavers, a few scientists, and a crew of porters - to climb the wall, if they can, measure the passage, and push on, if possible, all the way to the end of the cave...
