Abandoned Valley Trek – 1 Day

Tour Details

Trek: 12km

Swim: 300m (optional)

Fitness Level: Moderate to Strenuous

This trek is perfect for individuals willing to put in some extra work to get further into the jungle and explore some truly unspoiled tropical rainforest and caves. On this trek you will hike through the original Ho Chi Minh trail to the secluded Abandoned Valley in the heart of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. In abandoned valley we will guide you to two very special caves, E cave and Dark cave. At this private side of Dark Cave you will have opportunity to explore 800m into the darkness with your guide. Then, once at E cave we will feed you with a delicious jungle BBQ (vegan options available) before swimming in the amazingly blue waters of the cave. Read further for a more detailed description.
