Really great day out exploring Hang Tien cave! They provided hotel pickup and drove us into Phong Nha National Park! Once we were all kitted out at the Oxalis office in the park we drove another 20/30 minutes to start our trek. The jungle walk is beautiful, hilly and at times you will be slipping and sliding along, but the guides were very helpful and stopped for drinks along the way! Bring plenty of insect repellant!!! The cave itself is beautiful and has only recently been opened to the public. The cave is huge and it's exciting to go through it with your head torches - (it's not like Paradise Cave with all the tourist lighting). After exploring the cave we made our way out and trekked a little further to a river (which we were able to swim across) and then stopped for lunch at a camp. Great food, a selection of grilled meats and veg, plenty for everyone! After lunch we went back across the river and started our trek back- this part was quite uphill! One tip- use your own shoes if you can (the thicker the sole the better- trainers are completely fine). I used their shoes which you can pick up at their HQ and it was like wearing converse so it wasn't ideal. All in all it was a great day out, the whole group was exhausted by the end but we'll worth the scenery and experience! Professional and friendly staff!
