What to Expect

  The Day starts by visiting the spectacular Paradise Cave, a must-see cave in the National Park.  Take in the cave’s beauty while our tour guide gives you information about the impressive formations.

The tour continues with a trip to the 8 Ladies Cave and War Martyr Memorial.  In this cave 8 people were trapped during a bombing.  Let our guides tell you the whole story and learn about some of the history and traditions of Vietnam.  Please make sure to have clothing to cover your knees and shoulders for this visit.

The highlight of the trip is Tra Ang Cave.  You’ll have a short trek through the jungle where you will be greeted with a BBQ lunch prepared by our porters in an untouched environment.  After lunch you can have a fun and relaxing swim in the crystal waters of Hang Tra Ang. Taking a short scramble up some limestone rocks you will reach the cool waters of Tra Ang Cave and begin the 600m swim into the furthest depths of the cave.

Once the Tra Ang Cave swim is completed, our guides will lead you to the road. Here your driver will be waiting for you with a cold beer or soda and a ride back to Jungle Boss Headquarters.
