Hang Va Expedition 2 days tour of Phong Nha Locals Travel is one of the great adventures for tourists who could not do the expedition to Son Doong cave – the world’s largest cave. This new 2-day tour includes the ‘Hang Va & Hang Nuoc Nut’ expedition tour will be an unforgettable memory of your holiday.
As you know, Hang Va Cave and Hang Nuoc Rut are physically connected to Son Doong cave, because they are part of the Son Doong cave system based on their shared water flow. Following some professional cave explorers, the stalactites and stalagmites in Hang Va are even more beautiful and extraordinary than Son Doong cave. These caves were found in 2012 and to steps into the caves, you have to hike, stoop through the entrance by ropes and cross some rivers including the ones inside the caves.
With the rich experience in exploring caves, Phong Nha Locals provide the best adventure tours with every aspect of the trip that are carefully planned including delicious meals, the highest safety standards, and friendly and informative adventure guides. Come and enjoy unique and unforgettable Hang Va expedition experiences in the caves with our dedicated adventure tours. Although this tour operates 3-4 times per week, the maximum capacity is only 8 people per tour. So please book in advance to make sure you can get a great time with us!
At 8:00- 8:30, our Phong Nha private car will pick you up at your hotel/ homestay in Phong Nha and drive to Oxalis Headquarters. Before we start the Hang Va expedition, you will collect your gear, listen to a tour briefing, and sign our Release Form. Then, we transfer you to the trailhead.
From the trailhead, we will enter the jungle and hike to the entrance of Hang Nuoc Nut. Here we put on our Petzl helmets and Hope Technology 1500 lumen headlamps. Once inside the low opening, the cave enlarges dramatically and we explore the high-level series with excellent photographic opportunities. We have a picnic lunch with ice-cold drinks provided before setting off in the cave for around 2 kilometers. Enjoy the beautiful formations, enormous passage, and Underground River, again with many photographic opportunities.
Leaving the cave you will trek on a jungle path which though short is on tough and difficult terrain. The jungle campsite locates at the base of huge cliffs next to the entrance of Hang Va. Setting up and supplying for camp and tea/coffee are ready as well as a delicious dinner served by our local chef. This is a true jungle camp and a great experience around the campfire listening to the jungle noises.
Day 2 is the highlight of the Hang Va expedition. At 8:00 am, we will have a nice breakfast before exploring this fantastic cave, Hang Va. Firstly, we will climb down the steep entrance of Hang Va. It is quite slippery, so we have to move slowly with care. For your safety, we will have a rope for you to clip into with a harness provided for you in advance.
After that, if we are early, there is a chance to swim in a downstream pool inside Hang Va before heading upstream. You will walk most of the time in water flowing through the river passage, climb up and down, and squeeze between the rocks. The water level of the river passage can be as high as the chest level, so be ready to be wet for about 4 hours.
When you reach the end of the wet passage, you will need to use the harness again to carefully climb up to the high-level passage. You will certainly amaze with this high-level area because of its stunning formations, really rare throughout the world. In this area, we will have a lot of time to take beautiful images with the support of Hope technology and extra lights prepared specifically for photography in Hang Va Cave.
Finally, we will head back to the camp, enjoy lunch, and at around 2:00 pm, walk back to the road by a different route to the pickup point. Our driver will take you back to your hotel in Phong Nha by about 5:00 pm.
