Swallow Cave (Hang En) 2 days 1night
- Duration:2 days 1 night
- Destinations: Swallow cave ( Hang En )
From Hang En, it takes only two hours to search Son Doong – the biggest cave passage, voted last May by National Geographic Magazine as one of the most beautiful photos. This is the best tour in Phong Nha – Ke Bang
Hang Én (Swallow Cave) in Phong Nha Caves in Quang Binh province in central. However, it’s paradoxical that few visitors know the site. The Swallow 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.
How to get there:
After reaching Km No. 35 on the Ho Chi Minh Path, we followed a small path that led to a primeval forest stretching as far as our eyes could see. Hang En (Swallow cave) is located in Son Trach, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh province, Vietnam. It takes explorers 5 up to 6 hours of walking through a 9 kilometer long forest path from Truong Son Highway to reach the mouth of Son Dong cave.
