A trek established by Jungle Boss in early 2018, the Hang Pygmy Exploration has been done by very few people. In fact, less people have been through these 2 caves than have stood on Everest. Being a freshly establish trail this route is an extremely authentic jungle trek to the “not so little” sister cave of Hang Son Doong, Hang Pygmy.
This trek is perfect for adventures looking for an exciting challenge with an incredible reward. You will walk and scramble to explore the 3.5km of Hang Over, and prussiking into the massive cavern of Hang Pygmy, the 4th largest cave in the world. You’ll trek, swim, and camp in the untouched Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
