Day 307 – Saturday 25th March 2016

Our visit to Phong Nha National Park…
Today we visited Hang Toi Cave (the Dark Cave), one of over three hundered caves and grottoes at Phong Nha National Park. You’re probably wondering how and why we chose this particular cave out of so many, but for us the decision was easy. Here’s why:

1) To reach Hang Toi Cave we had to take Vietnam’s longest zip line over the Chay River. Harnesses were a must-wear for this one:

2) Inside Hang Toi Cave there’s a buoyant mud pool, where we floated around effortlessly and ended up absolutely covered from head to toe:

3) To return from Hang Toi Cave we had to kayak back along the Chay River:

4) Just before the exit there’s a mini obstacle course over the water, where I learned that you should always let go of a zip line before reaching the end (ouch!):

For us, a couple of travellers who aren’t particularly fussed about caves but love a bit of adventure, it was absolutely perfect. Better yet, instead of returning to Hue after picking us up, our bus continued overnight to Hanoi. That’s a win win if you ask me!
