Features of this trail is a vast cave explorer's arch Cracked Water Cave and stalactites in caves and pools, while wading the stream about 500 meters, it will have a nearly 15-meter high wall, visitors must use set equipment belt (harness) and climbing rope (the rope) to pass safely wall, then hang arch expansion, there are many lakes with walled stalactite and stalagmite column thousands springing up inside lakes, lake water often create magical scenery.
Stalactite columns are formed in a very unusual way, unlike other caves in Vietnam and elsewhere in the world, here stalactite columns are formed from a hard material (wood branches, grains of sand ...) at the bottom of the lake, the water level rise over time in the pool carries calcium and cling to hard objects constitute stalactite columns, so the lake and tall columns will glosses over time, however, the column never higher emulsion into the lake because the columns are formed from the remains in the lake water.
Cave explorer tourist routes Va - Water Cracking been put in the lowest level (of difficulty) in conjunction with the group expedition explorer tours Son Doong (6 days) and Tu Lan (4 days) in order to meet various needs diversification as well as more suitable for many types of customers. There will be 3-4 departures per week, maximum number of passengers per trip only 8 people to ensure quality of service as well as conserve the cave.

Type of caving tourism in Quang Binh was formed in 2011, with the Hang En tour, and later Tu Lan Son Doong.

The kind of tour operators have different time of the year to ensure the safety of the flood season, and to the caves have time balancing the ecosystem inside the cave, the number of visitors per tour as well as the number of guests in each row are calculated and limited.
Each tourist products are built with the difference in accents such as tours to swim since the cave, walk through the valley of the underground cave system, the walking tour Hang En between primeval forests, camping in the cave, cave vaulted great .... As the needs of any group increases, we can propose to open the routes fit the needs of each group, at the same time balance the capacity of each cave a reasonable way.
