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 you will be guided 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, enjoy a delicious jungle BBQ (vegan options available) before swimming in the amazingly blue waters of the cave.
