See the hidden gems underground at Kong Lor Cave, tucked away in the heart of a national park. Ride a boat to reach the entrance of the karst limestone cave, which goes 7 km (4.3 mi) deep into the ground. Inside lies an emerald pool, whose color locals believe resembles that of Hindu god Indra. Wander among the stalactites and stalagmites to appreciate nature's slow creation process. The cave ceilings rise high, so you won't feel claustrophobic upon entering. To plan Phoun Hin Boun vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

접근하기 매우 힘들다는 것만 빼면 꼭 가볼만한 곳. 지금까지 경험해 보지 못한 동굴. 매우 추천. more »But very hard to access by subtracting just attractions. so far, experience the caves. Very recommended.
The boat ride through the cave was fun with a stop about a third of the way in for a walk among lighted stalagtites and stalagmites. Both entrance area and exit areas are very scenic with limestone ka... more »
Le début du parcours en pirogue est trés bien. Après vous visitez seul à pied une partie de la grotte entre stalagtittes et stalagmittes.

After you visit only walk a part of the cave between stalagtittes and stalagmittes. Once the ' canoe resumed the journey is long especially in the dark because the n headlamps light up not too much, You can then reach a village with people very welcoming. Then way back. Remember to bring a sweater it's cold during transport by pirogue
Amazing and thrilling experience! Really worth the money. Try to come with 3 persons since that is the maximum per boat which will save you some money. Also there is the possibility to hike back after reaching the end of the cave rather then taking the same boat back. We did not know this before going so we missed out since we did not take our hiking shoes. The hike has to be done with a guide and takes 5-6 hours.
The main attraction on Thakhek loop, and rightfully so. It's about 7km long boat ride in pitch dark, only handful of flash lights. Locals boat driving skills are equally impressive. On the other side of the cave there is traditional village selling hand made product. While it might feel like a tourist trap, it is not. Locals have learned how to make nice products and invest a lot of their time and effort in making each item. This can be observed while visiting. Pricing is very reasonable as well.
Very beautiful cave but I've got some problems to get back to ban nahin. So beware! Get here very early. The cave closes at 4 p.m. and the last songthaew to get back leaves at 2 p.m.
It is a nice cave. You can reach it only by boat: 1 person - 110k 2 persons -120k 3 persons -130k Take flashlighter if you can, if not they can rent you some. Good idea to go in flipflops or without shoes at all, because you wil get wet. At the end you will reach a village, they are selling some souvenirs so take some money if you want to buy something. We left all money in the locker - so did not buy anything.
Absolute must see in the region. The cave is amazing and big I've never seen something like this before on the world. The guides know exactly how and where to drive in the dark. Must see in the region.
