ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like to recommend Trekking to Swallow Cave near Son Doong - World's largest cave tour.Son Doong Cave, En Cave (Swallow Cave or Hang En) are the most spectacular sights 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. All of these make the cave different from other well-known caves in the country.
Highlights: 
  • Third world’s largest cave adventure – Hang En Cave
  • Camping inside for at least one night
  • Same trekking trail to Son Doong cave
  • Private departure – Just for you
  • No waiting list – Go any time
  • Fully supported – Fully inclusive
