Kong Lor Cave, Phoun Hin Boun

#4 of 36 in Nature in Laos
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.

  • We Park the scooter in the parking for 5000 Kip. Passage to the office tickets to enter the site: 2000 Kip per person. Come close to the River, get the ticket for the boat: 120 000 kips for 2. We planned our headlamps and our shoes that can go in water (otherwise you have to rent everything on-site). Arrived at the foot of the mountain we boarded the boat and go for a ride with a little more than an hour. Navigation by boat in the cave and in the dark. Half way to go, it landed to go visit some walk. Very pretty. Back in the boat and continue up a small village (not all authentic, create any room for tourists but well...) After a little while, back to the boat for the return path. Along the way there are off the boat to move "fast". Water shoes are much needed. Superb experience. Really to do!

  • 7 hours travel from Vientiane have totally paid off. From southern bus terminal 70 approximately after 6 hours is ' 000 kip, transition in local, are for this again 25'000 due kip. Stayed at ban kong lor, morning walk on foot in 15 minutes to the cave. The ride with the tail through the cave is very impressive. At the end of the 7.5 kilometre long route, stop at a small clearing with various stalls is to set themselves. The return is done when one has seen enough. All very cozy and relaxed: style halt.

  • A 7 km-long cave that is crossed by boat. Although most in the dark will pass through, but even that is impressive. Partly estimated cave 50-60 m high. In the cavern of a page, leave the boat and goes walking in an area with huge stalactites and stalagmites formations attractively illuminated since 2010. Facilities to get very good headlamps. Tip: Tighten the trekking sandals, flip flops and shorts or pants to the rolling up. In smaller places of power, leave the boat and goes a piece through shallow water. In the River before the cave also swimming. Must schedule a minimum of 3 hours, if necessary Stay nearby. The only road of zr directions is a disaster.
