Tham Nam (Water cave), Vang Vieng

3.7
#2 of 9 in Parks in Vang Vieng
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.

  • Amazing experience. Divine views all round. The cave itself is beautiful
  • Went all the way there by motorbike and ended up not going into the cave.. it was about 3pm and very crowded (photo taken before another giant tour group arrived) looked like you just use a rope and tube to float inside and come back the same way.. they also have a some restaurants and zipline..
  • Amazing cave. Water in the cave isn't deep. And everyone can enjoy this cave.
  • Exciting, interesting, fun place to go.
  • Fun place you cannot be missed
