Abandoned valley


The Abandoned Valley in a remote area of the world heritage Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is traversed by part of the famous Ho Chi Minh trail. This tour takes in 12km of the Ho Chi Minh trail, exploring the Vietnamese tropical forest and experiencing the history of the Vietnam-American war as you trek along the narrow track. Explore the other exit of the now famous Dark Cave lost in the middle of the jungle, and explore unspoilt Hang E where you swim in a crystal clear natural spring. Hang E is one of the most beautiful river caves in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Enjoy a barbecue lunch in the jungle prepared by the porter team. This tour is a great opportunity to get in to the jungle, explore two unspoiled caves and experience authentic Vietnam whilst supporting employment for local people.
