PN 03 :
TU LAN CAVE ENCOUNTER
DURATION :
2 days 1 nights
 

Tu Lan Cave Encounter is easy for anyone who considers themselves physically fit and participates in regular outdoor activities, and moderate for anyone with limited outdoor experience.
You will trek approximately 12 km via overgrown jungle paths and scramble over boulders within the caves. You should be able to swim as you’ll explore a number of wet caves of varying lengths (100 m to 400 m each).
You should also feel comfortable having to climb through some small passages, and also up/down a 15 m ladder (with safety rope).
Never forget you are deep in the jungle and the difficulty of this tour is also very dependent on the weather. It can get very cold during December to March (8 – 15 degrees Celsius) and very hot during June to August (32 – 38 degrees Celsius), not to mention anytime it rains the jungle becomes very slippery and muddy.
Safety is absolutely paramount on all trips operated by Oxalis Adventure Tours, and along with having the best caving equipment, you’ll be led by one of our expert adventure guides. No children under 16 years of age permitted on this tour.
