  • We walked around for about 2 hours. Then you had to see the monkeys in a fenced, 2 peacocks and a snake. Since the highlight was when you had to climb up at the waterfall! Really fun and nice views. However, very muddy when it rained. Even went to bathe.

  • Was nice. On a stopover to the Paradisecave, we have quickly made a detour in the 'Garden'. It is rather a jungle to the walk is expanded. Also you can look at an animal rescue Center where animals on the from poaching to be prepared, does not require such an assessment "Animals in caged hens in small cages". This would-be animal rights has had no leadership and didn't understand why this is so. Nevertheless it worth seeing!

  • We walked trail #2. The trail isn't that much to see unless you really enjoy walking in the forest. The waterfall though is a real beauty, and the best thing is that you can climb it all the way up. For this you will need proper shoes (not flip-flop).
  • A must visit in Phong Nha. Trail #3 is a beautiful walk through the jungle, with just enough challenge to keep things interesting. The waterfall is gorgeous, made all the better by the need to actually walk up on it to exit the trail.
  • Breathtaking beauty of nature. Well-done landscape construction. Various routes fitting different level of strength and motivation. High diversity of plants. Thrilling hiking and trekking to Gio Waterfall. But the restaurant was a bit expensive and did not consist of many choices. Bringing along some foods and drinks is recommended.
  • The waterfall is beautiful but the rest of the sites are not much to look at. Good for a nice easy trail that has some good views
  • Nice and easy hike with 3 different routes/ hiking options! Price is 40.000 dong. The hike ends with the beautiful waterfall where you can relax and swim :) A "must" while in Phung Nha!
