Phon Nha-Ke Bang national ParkPhon Nha-Ke Bang national park is located in Vietnam and a favoured tourist hot spot. It's become a world heritage site because of its splendiferous natural wonders; stunning landscapes, intricate cave systems and mountain ranges that were formed over four hundred million years ago. Almost ninety percent of the park is home to lush, green forestry in which several hundred different types of animals reside. Primates, tigers and elephants roam the protected area and up to three hundred types of birds dwell in the trees. Access to the park was until recently very restricted, with a strong Vietnamese presence protecting it's borders. Hikers and expedition tours can be tricky to organize, simply because the park is so enormous that a lot of it still remains unexplored.
The Phong Nha regionThe village of Son Trach nearby has a small population of about three thousand people, which is surrounded by the stunning Karst mountains of Asia. It's a haven for cyclists and those who like to trek on foot and one can literally get lost in the wilderness. The village is primitive in its services providing basic accommodation, and eating choices, but the inhabitants are working hard to try and improve transport options that readily connect the place to other major parts of Vietnam.
