Kong Lor Cave, Phoun Hin Boun

(280+ reviews on the web)
Cave
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.

  • We were doing a farm stay not far from this area and decided to give the caves a go. You get a speedboat through the caves in the dark which is pretty wild but good fun. There was four of us so two sp...  more »

  • Facinating journey through a cave. The tours are defiantly worth it. Rather amusing during the dry season because we had to get out of the boat at times and push it up waterfalls. Lit up area inside displaying amazing cave formations.
  • I don't have a special interest in underground rivers, the experience was not really worth coming here. However, I love nature and really enjoyed staying in the village surrounded by gorgeous mountains
  • What a wonder! The cave itself and the boat trip to enter. Absolutely recommended if you are in Laos. It's probably quite difficult to reach (at least consider 2-3 days off your standard route if you're not doing the loop) but it deserve the effort. Some of the best side of Laos I've seen.
  • One of the most amazing places I've seen. Like nothing else, it's quite the ride. Plus the lagoon out front is the great spot for a swim on a hot day.
  • it was a really nice experience. due to there is no road between Ban Natan and Kong Lor, I had to transfer my motorbike on a "kenu-boat" through the cave river. it costs 200.000 kip, but it is a really funny and andventurous.
