After nearly a month of construction, the country’s highest partly-artificial climbing routes at Hang Toi (Dark Cave) in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park in the central province Quang Binh have been completed. The climbs are 30 metres high, including two climbing lines and a number of hand holds. The routes were designed and built by the EVERREST Viet Company and Mr. Pham Van Nhien, who won a silver medal for mountain climbing at the SeaGames and is one of only three Vietnamese climbers to have conquered Mt. Everest. The climbs are expected to attract more international visitors to the region.
