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.

  • It has many tourists who visit this water cave. But mostly it is tour groups. If you go for lunch, when all the food, it is suddenly alone in the cave. Spectacular!

  • Short tubing, followed by flat view. People with claustrophobia seemed to be hard to top. It is not just by the cave's unusual experience appears to be able to stack.

  • Die in your arms ache when it came out. Still laughing with your friends and get the power. It's not just where you cant see the whole package, put a machete to La Vang Vieng but ... I went to feel left out when it was being namchang

  • Amazing experience. Divine views all round. The cave itself is beautiful
  • Nice place for cave tubing. . Fun fun fun
  • Incredible landscape to reach this point and the staff at the entrance of the cave is very supportive
  • 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..
  • Interesting water cave where you need to tube to get in
