PHONG NHA: VIETNAM'S STUNNING NATIONAL PARK
Phong Nha is the adventure capital you’ve probably never heard of. So why haven’t you heard of it? Because much of this potential is yet to be realized. The exception, of course, is the area’s wide assortment of prehistoric caves, many of which have been surveyed and are now open to visitors, including the world’s largest cave, Son Doong, uncovered in 2009. As Mr. Howard Lim, a member of the British Cave Research Association, has been quoted to say, “I’ve caved all over the world and been here for 28 years. These are easily the best caves in the world. Just incredible.”
Over the last decade, a multifaceted sustainable tourism model has grown throughout Phong Nha, turning the region from impoverished to an epicenter of adventure and eco-tourism initiatives that actually benefit the locals instead of foreign companies and conglomerates.
Aside from the main draw of the caves, Phong Nha is filled with other activities to indulge in such as jungle trekking, rock climbing, river kayaking, and off-road cycling. Whether you’re a group of friends looking for a new experience, part of an active couple, or a family with older children and teenagers, we’ve got a wide assortment of tailor-made Phong Nha packages to fuel your adventurous side.
