48 hours to conquer Doi cape

Mui Doi (Doi Cape) in Khanh Hoa province has established itself as a travel destination that is trending with young people. However, it is not easy to conquer the cape as backpackers must spend two days undergoing a number of challenges: hiking through sand dunes, trekking through forest and crawling up and down slippery rocks.
