So it is a hike up the stairs but well worth it as the caves are very cool. The formations were great and undamaged. The views from the lookout really highlight how stunning Laos is.

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.
