Well worth a visit to this very special place, simply amazing! Truly spectacular, if you like natural attractions, these caves are one of the best along Sapa and Halong Bay.

Beautiful boat trip up river into this huge cave. Fun going through caves in the boat. Only a little walking required.

These caves are huge and beautiful. Especially enjoyed the 'Dark Cave' where we were able to swim through certain parts of the cave with head torches. These caves will soon be overrun with tourists though so go soon if you can!

Amazing scenery and something different from the usual jungle/trekking. It's been opened for visitors with a great deal of care and thought, so wandering around was a pleasure. The water was clean, mountains were green and the caves were colourful

At a million a piece to do a tour we decided to go on our own. Rented a scooter from long hotel in Dong Hoi. They gave us a map to get to Son Trach / phong nha. The town is set up for tour groups. Our hotel (Song Son Phong Nha) fed a (loud) group of 20 people at 6 am but said no to us when we came for breakfast at 8. We found 2 places to eat along the main strip and more near the market. Got a map for the national park from Jungle Bar. Phong Nha cave is neat. Paradise cave is much better. The "Eco" trail near paradise was upsetting. We visited on Sunday afternoon and saw massive amounts of litter (styrofoam, food bits, and beer cans) all over, along with drunk locals yelling "hello" at us and laughing. Maybe it's a Sunday thing? Overall it's a beautiful place to visit though.
