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. See Kong Lor Cave and all Phoun Hin Boun has to offer by arranging your trip with our Phoun Hin Boun trip builder.

The boat-ride through Konglor cave is simply an amazing experience. Although I had been to Phong Nha and its many caves, I was really impressed by the long trip through the completely dark, immense ca... more »

Visite au mois de juin. De fortes précipitations qui font que nous avons eu des difficultés à accéder à certains points d'intérêts de la boucle de Takhek. Arrivée le premier jour à Kong Lor - 15h la g... more »Visit in June. Heavy rainfall that make that we had access to some points of interest of the Takhek loop. Arrived the first day at Kong Lor - 15: the cave is closed due to too high water level (heavy rains of the night) - we are told to come back the next day that there will be no problem. Strong thunderstorms during the night, we decided to go even when very early. Survey 7 h 30 (the cave opens at 8:00), the bike is down (engine drowned by the storm). We're getting help and we're coming at 9. A group is already in the cave. We ask if we can go given the rains. The response from the seller of tickets is to ask (in Lao) drivers to dugout who has the "courage" to go. After a brief hesitation, a driver decides. It tells us that we can go to the half way because in the past it's too dangerous and the water is rising. Without be reassured we will visit the cave. Thrill guaranteed given the current and darkness. The visit was great. It's pretty scary to go under the mountain but well worth the money: highlight of Thakhek loop with the landscape that leads to Konglor. Tip 1: If you have your own front LED, take with you (the lights that we lend you in Laos illuminate not many) Council 2: if it rained during the night, go ahead as soon as possible: a group who arrived 10 minutes after we had to turn back.
