Tham Nam (Water cave), Vang Vieng

(3.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Drag yourself by a rope while floating in a tube and exploring Tham Nam (Water cave). The 500 m (1,640 ft) long ride winds through dark corners and pristine refreshing waters, with only the light of your headlamp illuminating the narrow passages. Although the conditions are completely safe and the fixed ropes ensure you don’t wander off, you can hire a guide to assist you and give you some background information about the cave. Finish your adventure with a meal in the nearby restaurant. Keep in mind that the tube floating experience is possible only during the wet season, while in the dry season visitors explore the cave by foot. Put Tham Nam (Water cave) into our Vang Vieng tour planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Buy a one day trip to go sit with very long flashlight ring, but good fun, I'm slightly confused and have nothing but nothing LOL. The sleeping friends shriek each ring a big storyline brother tells youngsters. Simeon stands as Shin HA ยยย crook See the mystery straight it is dark. Use the time not long for about 40 minutes.
