    Wow! I have never heard of this cave but now I want to do this. I do a lot of hiking and trekking but I had never thought of doing a cave trek. Your photos of the huge cave and the little tiny tents are insane. And I can’t believe this only cost $330! Thanks so much for sharing this place.

      Of course! I had never heard of it either, but a friend told me about it! Now we have to pass the info along! It is super cool!

    Woah! That sounds like a cool adventure! I like caves and exploring but I never even imagined there would be a cave big enough for that many people tent camping. Pretty cool!

    Wow this is so cool. I didn’t realise it was a whole event with camping equipment and prepared dinners. That’s the way to travel though!

      It was all very fancy! The contrast was notable…trekking through rivers up to your waist and then a seemingly gourmet meal to follow!

    Ooo! This is definitely something that I would love to do. I am fascinated by caves and those are absolutely breathtaking. Maybe I will need to take your tips from here and start planning something. 😛

      I highly recommend it! Plus there are several other smaller caves in the area so you can have a cave-filled week!

    WOW .. what amazing photographs. I loved the one of you on the rock with the tents in the background. I’ve never seen anything like it. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. ~~ Jay @birdsOAFpress

    That look absolutely awesome! Just added it to my bucket list. Wish I could afford the big one too but, in reality, I think I’d be better off spending that money on several weeks of adventure elsewhere. I’m guessing the water is vaguely warm for all that wading through?

      Totally agree with you! You have to stretch the adventure out as much as possible. The water could have definitely been warmer if I had a say in it…but that didn’t stop some of the people from swimming in it!

    What a fun and unique experience to sleep in a cave! It does look daunting to get there (and back) especially the wading through the water. ugh. I’m afraid it is not my cup of tea but it does look very adventurous and makes for an excellent story!

      Definitely not for everyone! I figured it could have gone either way, but I loved it!

    I’m glad you were able to put your many millions of dongs to good use! This seems like something I would love to try. Were there any points when you were *really* cold? I’m pretty active and can sleep through just about anything – except I’m an utter nightmare when it comes to being cold.

      I hate being cold too! It was a bit chilly in the evening (I was there in February) while eating dinner, but sleeping was fine because they provided you with as many sleeping bags as you wanted!

    Hey! I’m from California too! Great post, I’ve never thought of going to Vietnam, but I’m crazy about hidden caves and undiscovered corners of the world. Thank you so much for sharing your trip and insight!

      Haha, I’m not actually from California, it’s just my name (east coast girl actually!) Thanks so much for your comment and maybe Vietnam will be in your future!

    This sound like quite an amazing adventure. I was in Vietnam earlier and would have loved to do this. One question, though did you feel claustrophobic? From your pictures it doesn’t like it though. What fun!!
