Wake up to the sounds of the jungle and enjoy a hearty lunch before taking up the trail again, largely made up of a jumble of rocks to pick your way over, with the help and direction of the guide and safety team.
The huge entrance is at the head of the valley. As you enter the cave, you will see many unusual cave features such as a ceiling dome and multiple layers of rock, giving the walls a striped appearance. Climb up a 10m ladder with help from a safety rope, and a short distance later you will see the end of the cave, and an opening into the jungle. Continue into the jungle valley and trek for around 30 minutes to the second cave. A small opening with swirling striped patterns on the walls drops into a much larger passageway filled with calcite formations.
Turn around and retrace the journey back to the entrance, across the jungle through the first cave down the rocky valley and enjoy a picnic lunch. Refreshed, it’s then time for the big hill back up and down to the road for car pickup and return to the office for a shower. Transfer to your hotel in Phong Nha, arriving around 18:00.
