Depart for Oxalis Headquarters between 8:00-8:30 this morning for a safety briefing and equipment hand-out. Then, head into the jungles of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, trekking on a steep downhill section. Head uphill for a short while and then take the final long, steep and rocky descent to a small stream. The stream will take you to Ban Doong, a small ethnic minority village situated within the national park.
Enjoy a delicious lunch in Ban Doong and take some time to learn about the rich culture here before trekking further to Hang En River Valley. Follow the river, crossing it consistently until you reach the entrance of Hang En Cave. This is where you’ll make camp for the night, within the huge chamber of Hang En, upon a beach inside the cave, with stunning views of the area below.
Go for a swim in your tent-side “pool” before a full dinner is served by your porter team.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
