Pretty cool caves. Glad they give you a torch, though it's better to take your own with a decent beam. I recommend going with a guide who knows the caves.

These caves are pretty close together and the light you get for your 10,000Kip is of help. Even better if it was brighter! OK, but not too much to see early on, so I didn't venture further in. My least favourite caves in the area,...More

This is really good option, very nice to caving, many times is little dangerous. Is better if you go with guide with tour. GOOD.

I rented a mountain bike from Vang Vieng to do some independent spelunking. These two caves are located in some scenic farmland about 16 km north of town and are absolutely worth the trip. Tham Hoi is the bigger one and is easily worth a...More

This is what I would like to see when visiting caves. A big, dark cave, untouched in the sense that there are no wooden pathways and no light. You can walk hundreds of meters into the cave and explore the interior by your own torchlight....More

Drove here in our rental. Missed the turning twice. 10000 to park and 5000 per person to cross the bridge. We hiked through the rice fields and dirt tracks in search but after finding the elephant cave and water cave we didn't manage to find...More

We saw these caves as part of a tour organised in Vang Vieng so didn't have the issues other travellers have mentioned with guides trying to rip you off. We'd organised this bespoke tour to the 4 caves (elephant, Hoi, Loup and water) because it...More

Nice one. Well accessible and enough room to walk; although not possible to fully assess as I was there virtually by myself. Views from outside are also very nice. Worth a visit, and easy to do from Vang Vieng

Vang vieng is like Thai full moon island crowd beamed down to maraud through a beautiful landscape. Lonely planet write up made us give it a chance and the caves and lagoons they write about sounded chill and something we could explore independently. Tham nam...More
