In the morning

8:30 am: After that, we start our hang Pygmy exploration by car along 20 Quyet Thang road to km24 – the starting point of trekking through the forest.

10:00 am: We arrive at kilometer No.24 on Victory Road and begin your journey through the forest to explore the Phong Nha – Ke Bang primeval forest system. The path is quite strenuous, with constantly changing slopes. You will walk through small paths in the deep forest.

Along the way, the tour guide will also give you information about the lives of local people and the cultural practices of the Arem ethenic minority who once lived in this area. In addition, the survival skills of indigenous people are also shared so you can gain more experience for your journey.

12:00:  Arrive at the top of Wind slope, where you will enjoy the continuous wind blowing, creating a refreshing feeling after a hard time wandering through the forest. We will have lunch and rest here to have enough energy for the afternoon.

2:00 pm: We arrive at Lươn Slope and take a short break before trekking to Hang Over Cave.

2:30 pm: At the entrance of Over Cave, we will prepare safety equipment to explore this 3.2km long cave. We will pass through giant stalactites with different shapes, and you will reach a vast space called Massive Attack. This area is beautiful, with many different species of stalactites located in a cave dome up to 125m wide and more than 80m high. Hence, this is a great place to capture beautiful photos for your trip.

4:00 pm: Continue your journey to exit Hang Over Cave and reach the sinkhole behind Pygmy Cave. This is a giant sinkhole that divides Pygmy Cave and Over Cave, and it contains a large primeval forest right inside.

After going through the forest in the sinkhole, you will begin your journey to explore Pygmy Cave by following the abseiling safety gear to climb to the Dinosaur passage in the middle of the cave. Then, we will abseil about 10 meters down the cave and walk to the Pygmy Cave entrance. This is where we will camp overnight.
