From here, a B-52 boat will transfer your bicycles to the next station. Meanwhile, you will do a short hike through the corn and peanut fields. Hop on your bike again and back on the road.

Leaving the National Park, you will cross the Chay river over a wooden bridge and visit Wine Cave – where the V.C made rice wine during the time hiding bomb from the U.S aircraft. There is a symbol of peace that still remained in the cave. A local ferry to cross the Chay river will give you a chance to meet up with the best Russian speaking local man in the area.
On the way back, stop at Ho Khanh’s house to learn about the caving passion of the King of the Cave Kingdom. Ho Khanh is the local jungle man who first found Hang Son Doong – the World’s Biggest Cave. He is working as the porter leader for the trip to Hang Son Doong.
