Pu Luong adventure trekking, jungle experience > 5 days

The Pu Luong Nature Reserve is a splendid and ideal place for adventure trekking. The rice fields rolling down the mountains covered with jungle and forest offer a fantastic spectacle and heavenly views. Pu Luong is also an ideal place for a more intense adventure by immersing yourself in the jungle and discovering all its secrets.

Leave accompanied by Thai locals deep in the jungle for a unique experience. Bivouac in the middle of the bamboo forest, campfire, bamboo cooking, picking jungle products for meals. An intense and exciting adventure.

Start gently with a hike through the rice fields that will take you to the charming village of Kho Muong. Continuing a little, you will reach the bat cave which can be visited depending on the weather conditions.

After a quiet night, it will be time to conquer the Pu Luong jungle. If the first part will test your endurance, the trekking then takes a different turn. After the first camp set up and a first night in the jungle, you will embark on this labyrinth through the bamboo forest.

The second night will be here, in the heart of the jungle. The last day will take you to the summit of Pu Luong where a last lunch over a wood fire (or rather over a bamboo fire) will be served before starting the descent to return to the homestay. After a comfortable last night, you will return to Hanoi with memories full of memories.
