Lovely cave with a nice little pool to swim in afterwards. Very quiet and not many visitors when we were there. Worth an afternoon out.

Easily walkable from Vang Vieng this is a large, impressive cave with lots of cool natural features. The last ascent is up quite a few steepish steps, but it's well worth the effort. We spent lots of time exploring it's nooks and crannies!

This cave was used as a hiding place for the locals during the Vietnam war. In addition to stalagmites & stalactites there are two shrines, one Buddhist and one Animistic.

We cycled here along a very bumpy road but you could also walk here in about 20 mins from the town centre. 147 steps to climb to get in. One of the most extensive cave systems we've been in, well lit and paths to walk...More

More crowds, more noise and more witless tourists (like me) walking into your camera shot just before you press the shutter. Worth exploring though. We climbed the steps and saw the cave but spent the majority of the day relaxing in the gardens at the...More
