  • They called botanic garden because you call it "1.5-hour walk in the Woods" was too long. Nice walk, mind you, but nothing interesting.

  • Before you get disappointed, this is not a botanic garden. So don't go expecting, flora lined pathways with species from all over the world. This is more of a mini jungle trek. There's three options t...  more »

  • So we took the Trail No.2 and it was gorgeous. There are a few stops here and there and some nice views and fenced areas to look at some animals. The most of the track was not touched so mostly you had to look where you have to go. Also was the climbing at the waterfall pretty challenging, so watch for the proper shoes!
  • I would reccomend visiting whilst doing the loop through the National Park. The views are AMAZING! The park is nice and there are various trails of different lengths depending on how much time you have. The waterfall is nice make sure you climb up it to see it in full.
  • Beautiful. Did the loop 2 walk which took about 1.5 hours. Very slippy so wear hiking boots if you have them. The waterfall has a swimming area which looks lovely but too cold when we were there.
  • This was possibly the best part of my Phong Nha caves tour. The waterfall was stunning and the walk there (trail one) was pleasant. However be careful when climbing up the waterfall as it is very slippery especially after rain. Also, in spite of the name this is definitely not a botanical garden.
  • We did the "long" hike kg 4km and loved it. More jungle than garden but great to be out there. Waterfall was lovely.
