The was the highlight of our trip to Vietnam and was just amazing, the people we were with and the guides were all amazing. We were picked up at our hotel in Phong Nha (which was nice) and taken straight to the base camp. I would recommend this trip for anyone, I am not am avid walker and have little experience with this but it was easily doable and the food and bed were very welcome.

Hello, If you travel to Vietnam, you should go to the Phong Nha Nationalpark. I did the tour Tu lan Cave Encounter. First of all the tour is very well structured and organized. The team think of everything. The food is perfect and you feel safe during the trekking all the time. For me it was the first time so I had no experiences and The tour guides help you all the time. Thank you a lot! For me it was the highlight of my trip to Vietnam.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trek. I found some parts a little hard but it was so worth it. The caves are spectacular and it was fun swimming through them. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and his helpers were great. The food was good and there was plenty. Staying by waterfall at night was special. It was the highlight of our holiday. I would recommend this trip.
