On arrival to the entrance of the cave, the boat controller will turn off the engine and start rowing in the longest underground river in the world. Turn on your head-torch and see several amazing rock formations along this wet cave. Get off the boat and start our 1-hour visiting the cave with an introduction of the guide related to fairy-tale naturally shaped stalagmites and stalactites.

After swimming in the cold water, we will have a retreat with natural mud bath lies secretly deep inside the small corridors of the cave. Different from warm mud-bath from other places in Vietnam, the mud bath here is cold but based on the latest research, it’s the most precious mud bath in Vietnam. The last of the day is a collection of fun activities like kayaking, Zip-line or swimming in the cool water of Chay River. At around 4.30 PM, our guide will take us back to our hotel in Phong Nha. Trip ends.
