What To Expect From Hang En Adventure Cave Camp Tour?

World’s Most Unique Campsite

The camping area is in the middle of the En cave, where there is a cave entrance high above. Below is a wide sandy beach with an emerald lake, like a miniature beach. Plus, there is a part of the Rao Thuong river that flows through it.

Hang En campsite receives light from the cave entrance every day. In particular, from December to the end of February every year, when the rays of sunlight shine deep inside the cave, brightening the entire cave dome. So, it creates an impressive and virtual scene.

Unique natural swimming pool 

The campsite has a cold water pool flowing from an underground cave, creating a lake with emerald-colored water with a temperature of about 17 to 25 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the water in the lake is warm in winter and cool in summer.

Meanwhile, the water in the nearby stream brings warm water from outside the valley into the cave due to its long flow under the sunlight.

After wading through the underground streams, we will reach the large sandy floor of the giant cave exit. Next, we will return through the cave to the underground camp to enjoy lunch and take a short break.

Then, we will leave the cave for the last challenge of wading through many streams and climbing a sloping hill around 450m high. At the top of the hill is the road and our car with cold drinks is ready to welcome you back after all the challenges in your Hang En Cave adventure journey.
