Active Adventure

 - Trekking to Swallow Cave near Son Doong cave
Son Doong Cave and En Cave (Swallow Cave or Hang En) are the most spectacular sights and near each others in Quang Binh province (Central of Vietnam). Fortunately, when trekking tour to Son Doong is only for testing and currently limited by government, we can have a great two-day trek to En Cave �" the same way to Son Doong cave. The Cave is 1.645 m long and has three mouths. One is halfway up a mountain and two others are located on another mountain which has its foot on the south-east and north-west alongside Rao Thuong Stream. Its beauty takes by surprise. The mouth is almost 100m wide and 120m height. Three huge water caves inside are separated by sloping hills which are filled with smooth sand and large rocks overlapping one another. All of these make the cave different from other well-known caves in the country.
