Detailed Itineraries:

Day 1: Phong Nha – Tan Hoa – Cao Quang

Your first day begins in Phong Nha with pickup from your local hotel around 7:30 – 8:00 am. From 8:00 – 9:30 am, you’ll make your way to Oxalis’s Tan Hoa office, where you will learn all about safety measures collect your gear and sign our Release Form before departure at 10:30 am. The first part of the walk is tricky with 1 hour trekking uphill and then a hike down alongside the river. You will make a stop for lunch at around 1:00 – 1:30 pm.

You then will reach a tranquil magnificent blue lagoon located right in the middle of the jungle surrounded by rocks. This kind of scenery is rare in the world, it makes you wish you could stop the time and live in this moment forever. Take your time to enjoy a refreshing swim or moments to take some great photos when the sun goes down. Your campsite of the night will be right beside the lagoon, where the mouth-watering fulfilling BBQ dinner prepared by porter team is waiting. After dinner, let’s take a good sleep for your upcoming exploration of Hang Tien 1 and Hang Tien 2 the following day.

Day 2: Hang Tien 1 – Hang Tien 2 – Tan Hoa – Phong Nha

Wake up in your jungle campsite to breakfast prepared bright and early by the porter team. After enjoying your breakfast, you’ll need to climb over a field of boulders before being greeted by the sight of Hang Tien 1 around 9:00 am.

Within Hang Tien 1, about 50 m inside the entrance, lays a large chamber where the ceiling is beautifully patterned. The cave has two sections, one on the right side which goes deep down, and we will pass on the left hand side with many gour pools. Pushing forward, the tour will continue through most of Hang Tien 1 and up a ladder, from which the exit of Hang Tien 1 will be visible. The exit will be reached around 11:00 am.

Trek through the jungle for thirty minutes and at 11:30 am, you’ll head back into the subterranean world known as Hang Tien 2. Here you’ll find many formations, and you’ll trek about 300 m into the cave, before making your way out, back through the exit of Hang Tien 1. Enjoy a picnic lunch.

The next couple hours will be filled with your return trek to the road, where cold drinks will await you. Arrive back at the office around 4:00 pm, where you’ll have time to shower and change into fresh clothes before heading back to Phong Nha. The endeavor will end at 6:30 pm in Phong Nha.

Responded 18 Jun. 2019
Dear valued adventurer, Congratulations to you and your partner on being newly weds and we hope you enjoyed your honeymoon! Thank you for joining our Hang En 2-Day Adventure and leaving behind such a wonderful feedback. We're so glad that you found the adventure to be an amazing one and enjoyed every aspect of it, despite the challenges. We're truly sorry to hear about the blisters you suffered; we always recommend our beloved customers to bring proper non-waterproof trekking shoes and only offer our military canvas boots as an alternative which we recommend wearing with thick socks. We're happy to know that you could appreciate the chef's hard work and will surely convey your regards to the Oxalis team that accompanied you. Once again, thank you for choosing Oxalis Adventure and recommending it. We look forward to having you and your partner in Phong Nha again and take you on yet another spectacular adventure! Best regards, Rohan Pillai Oxalis Adventure Team
