AM

We will drive to Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park. At the Phong Nha Cave’s boat station, we will be equipped with high quality gear required for successfully exploring the Phong Nha Cave. The assigned tour guide will provide general information about the cave before entering it. 
Depending on the size of the group the cave will be entered either by kayak or boat. On the way in the first two zones of the Phong Nha cave will be passed: The entrance zone & twilight zone. The entrance zone is home to many different animals like birds, fish, snakes, monkeys. Every animal that lives in the sunlight can seek shelter in the entrance zone of the cave. Not far from the mouth of the  cave the Twilight zone starts. This is the zone in which the carefully placed artificial lighting system is installed. Grand stalagmite and stalactite formations are beautifully lid up by this system and it creates a spectacular ambience and vibe. The twilight zone stretches for about 1.2 kilometers and after the last lamp the dark zone officially starts.
After venturing approximately 500 meters into the dark zone the kayaks/boat will be left behind and participants will have to make their way over enormous boulders, narrow passages and huge stalagmites & stalactites. 

PM

After making it through the first kilometer of the dark zone a simple lunch will be served to regain some of the used up energy. Next up we will swim approximately 200 meters to a sandy beach. At one point the river current gets stronger and one of the tour guides will span a rope between one side of the river and the other to successfully get participants across.
After 2-4 hours the 4.5km point will be reached, here we will be awarded certificates for successfully exploring the Phong Nha cave. The way back seems to be completely different. Although partly the same route will be walked viewing the cave from the other way is completely different.
Back at the kayak/boat there is time to relax and swim before slowly returning to the boat station. The twilight zone will also be visited including the amazing By Ki chamber where the Cham people have left a inscription that’s over a thousand years old. The twilight zone will be explored by foot and the artificial lighting system will create for another entirely different caving experience.

    The Quang Binh province in Central Vietnam is quickly developing the reputation as the adventure capital of Southeast Asia. Gargantuan limestone caverns beg exploration beneath the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. Hordes of tourists are flocking to the area to venture inside these ancient caves. Now more exciting activities are available for those searching for more pursuits on the surface. One such experience is mountain biking in Phong Nha, which offers a mix of tough off-road trails, rural surroundings, historic sights and enchanting scenery. While the grandeur of the massive caves hiding amongst the jungles of the national park attracts thousands of visitors, the farmlands in the neighbouring area remain relatively untouched. The mountain biking in Phong Nha took us deep into the heart of it and left us longing to venture back out on two wheels to relive the experience. • “Shi is an amazing guide. I cycled 40km with him around Phong Nha and it was awesome. Super friendly guy with very good bikes. I spoke to him the day before about the kind of trip I was after. I do a lot of portrait photography, so i was keen to meet and hopeful snap some of the locals. He tailored the trip around this, introducing me to people along the way and even translated for me where needed. Couldn't recommend this enough, it was one of the highlights of my trip” _ by Chris Rush, from U.K • “So after completing the Son Doong cave tour, I was tired and thought I had did enough. But biking with Pvt. Shi was the perfect complement. In fact, I think it's the perfect complement to any trip in Phong Nha. Biking around the town and to the local side really added a personal touch. Highways became streets. Streets into muddy roads. Muddy roads to rivers. Whether it was rice fields and cows to small neighborhoods and smiling kids, every part of the biking tour felt great. You get a real sense of the place” – by James, from the U.S More about this adventure, please see at: http://www.nomadasaurus.com/caves-farmland-mountain-biking-in-phong-nha-tour/
