Hang Pygmy Exploration

Tour Details

Itinerary

Day 1: Jungle Hiking and Camp
Starting at the Jungle Boss headquarters we will brief you and the team on what to expect, and check that everyone is prepared.
After the briefing we will make the 45min-1 hour ride in Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park to the trailhead.
After saying goodbye to the last piece of humanity we will exit the road and begin the jungle hike. While walking through the jungle our guide will teach you about some local plant life, maybe feed you some tasty treats the jungle has to offer and show you some pieces of the minority people’s (the Ruc Ca Roong) culture -the Jungle people who survive off of the jungle resources.
After a few kilometers we will stop for lunch and a rest, giving you an opportunity to recharge and ask the questions you may have. After lunch we will continue trekking until we reach Pygmy cave, the fourth largest cave in the world where you will set up the campsite at the mouth of the cave or in the middle of the jungle inside the cave. While you are exploring this massive cave, our team of porters will prepare a hardy Vietnamese meal with rice, veggies, soup, and meat. Oh, and customary of Vietnamese culture, rice wine will be included, Cheers!; “Mot Hi Ba Zo!”
 
Day 2: The hang Over Cave (3.5 kilometers of cave awesomeness), jungle trekking
A day Underground.
The morning will begin with a solid breakfast and coffee or tea. After the meal our team of porters will clean up camp, making sure to leave nothing behind! Once you have been supplied with filtered locally sourced water, helmet and headlamp the team will begin exploring the hang Over cave. Hang Over begins with a long narrow shaft with various cave formations, growing in size and beauty with each step. Eventually, the team will reach a massive grotto, filled with amazing stalagmites and stalactites, speleothems (decorations), and beautiful pools. Here in the grotto the guide will choose an appropriate location for lunch. After eating some cucumber salad and other snacks next to some amazing cave features you will proceed to the exit of Hang Over (see photo gallery for more!)
 
On the trek home we will again stop a few times for rest and some light snack breaks, with the opportunity to marvel at the amazing jungle valley you hiked out of. Upon exiting the jungle trail you will be greeted at the road with some cold beverages and a bus ride back to the Jungle Boss office!
