  • The cave is not the most spectacular I've ever seen, but it's quite nice. Also it is a lovely hike to Ba Na.
  • The cave is nice to look at but the local people charged me 20,000 kip for just seeing it - it's on the road so there is no need to pay them it is a scam
  • A nice hour walk from the village. The cave itself is okay, nothing special but the experience which included lunch by the river bank was all worth it. It took and hour to get the food but it is the kind of experience you cannot easily get in the main village.
  • We wandered out of town to here. Its about an hour but we had gone on to discover nothing of interest so came back to the cave. We were charged a nominal fee to cross the bridge which is fair enough. It was very grey when we were there but still stunning. Im not to sure if you could wander as much if the rice season was on. There is a small cafe and a toilet. No food just ginger tea. The man who owns it was nice and chatty.
  • Not worth the 1 hour return trek unless you are well-equipped to venture deeper into the cave. The entrance to the larger caves is on the left after the "ticket booth" and accessed by climbing a set of bamboo stairs. Given the moist and dark conditions, ensure that you have appropriate footwear and a headlamp of more than 200-250+ lumens for visibility. The 30 minute walk to the cave was easy but largely unsheltered so bring lots of sunscreen. There was a cafe and private toilet facilities in the vicinity but these were closed when we were there.
