Howard Limbert and his wife are the two foreign cave experts hired by the Oxalis Company to train adventure tour guides and plan specific tourist itineraries for the company.
The two experts are already present in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park and will plan the cave tours in consultation with the company to ensure safety for visitors and provide skills to guides to run tours in the tropical forest to explore caves and to trek and climb mountains.
They will help promote cave tourism by guiding American and European companies to make films on the caves in Quang Binh Province.
Mr and Mrs. Limbert and their team have explored caves in Vietnam for the last 20 years and discovered several caves across a stretch of 200 kilometers in Quang Binh Province. They are credited with making Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park a world natural heritage site.
They have also brought world attention to the Son Dong cave--the largest cave in the world. Son Dong is one of the many caves in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
The Oxalis Company has its headquarters in Quang Binh Province and specializes in adventure and eco tours in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in Bo Trach District as well as other cave areas in the vicinity of the district.
