Review-Ke Bang National Park Tours: Rain Forest and Cave Trek
Ke Bang in northern Vietnam is home to the biggest caves in the world. Over the ages, these natural structures have grown so vast due to extreme seasonal flows of water that have washed away the limestone as well as very few earthquakes which would have caused them to collapse. This gallery show some of the high lights of Hang En Cave, from one of our Ke Bang National Park Tours.
Hang En Cave was considered to be the largest cave in the world before the discovery of Son Doong in 2009. It has its own climate, flora, fauna, underground rivers, lake and beach. A 10km trek through the rain forest gets you there, where you stay overnight on the pristine sands of its unique beach. A delicious BBQ is served before settling down for the night.
On the next morning, breakfast is served before several hours are spent exploring the caves. After an hour or so of rest comes the trek back through the rain forest to the starting point (by far the hardest part!) before driving back to the lodge.
All camping and caving equipment as well as f0od is provided, carried and prepared by the ground staff, which is a good thing as the trek through the jungle alone is only for the fit and that’s assuming they’re carrying a small pack.
‘Fit’ is a relative term so its for each individual to decide if they want to experience this amazing journey. My friend and I are both in our 40’s and managed perfectly well whilst the oldest member of the group was a lady of 60.
