Tham Nam (Water cave), Vang Vieng

(3.7/5 based on 300+ 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.
