Kayaking, boating, and other water activities
Phong Nha may be far from the sea, but there’s still water everywhere you look. Typhoons batter the destination each year (usually in October) and a week without any rain at all is a very rare occurrence. This has created a landscape where rivers, streams, and lakes are found across the province, which not only feed the fields but also set the scene for watery adventures.
You can only access Phong Nha Cave by boat, while Dark Cave looks over a pond of fun-filled water activities. Alternatively, take a kayak to the river and craft your own experience.
