Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is located in western Bo Trach district, close to the border with Laos and was designated a Unesco World Heritage site in 2003.
The national park is situated in one of the largest areas of contiguous limestone karst in Asia, which also includes Hin Namno National Protected Area in Laos, nestled between the northern and central Annamite Mountains. The topography of the national park is characterised by precipitous karst ridges which rise to elevations of around 400m. Scattered among these ridges are narrow valleys and pockets of igneous rock formations.
An impressive system of 300 caves is in existence here with many now accessible to visitors including Phong Nha Cave, Paradise Cave and Hang En. This is still a largely undiscovered area which offers those with a sense of adventure the chance to come face to face with giant stalactites and stalagmites and explore nature's mystical wonders.
