Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003, the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park in the North Central Coast region is one of the world’s two largest karst regions formed nearly 400 million years ago.

Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park
Featured with hundreds of caves, grottos and underground rivers, some are extraordinary in scale and length, the park is a heaven on earth for speleologists. A journey to the park can be begun from Dong Hoi, the closest city to Phong Nha with the newly operated airport in 2008 or you can take day tours running from Hue.

Phong Nha cave is more than seven kilometers in length comprising 14 chambers and a 13 km long underground river. It’s the Vietnam’s second biggest cave. The first 1500 meters of the cave are opened to public.

Paradise cave was discovered in 2005 by a local. The cave boasts inside some of the most beautiful and spectacular stalactites and stalagmites in the park. At 31 km in length, only 1 km is open to tourists by golf car or walk on a paved road.

Firstly found in 1991 but well-known in 2009, Son Doong is now listed as one of the most attracting travel destinations just like Mount Everest (By Huffingtonpost)

Son Doong or Mountain River Cave was firstly found by a local man named Ho Khanh in 1991 but it is only widely known to the public after a group of scientists from the British Cave Research Association conducted a survey inside in 2009. At more than 5km long, 200m high, and 150m wide, jungles, Son Doong contains a jungle, a river inside, and could fit a 40-story skyscraper within its walls, making it become the world’s largest cave. The cave is located near the Laos – Vietnam border. The first tourist group explored the cave on a guided tour in August 2013.
