Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, Vang Vieng

(2.2/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Take a dip in a small emerald-colored river, or explore an ancient cave at Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon, an improvised eco-water park in a scenic village close to Vang Vieng. Observe sharp stalactites and stalagmites as you descend down steep walls to reach the largest hall of the cave, which contains a gilt bronze statue of a reclining Buddha, with several other smaller Buddha images revered by locals. The green-blue waters of the lagoon outside the cave provide a good relaxation spot, as well as the opportunity to jump off a tree into the water. You can also try your hand at abseiling or hurtle down one of the water slides throughout the day. Using our online itinerary creator, Vang Vieng attractions like Tham Phu Kham Cave and Blue Lagoon can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • You can save yourself the Blue Lagoon if you want peace and nature. Meanwhile, there's even a slide. The cave is very impressive!

  • There is a green-colored water of the fa. Have to jump the water coming down from the branches down into the water or jump rope suspension wong do lose gluten ball wind or water slide, it has? At this point, agree to Vang Vieng's popular, so a lot of people. There are restaurants ... # 25.

  • Our tour hit was included in our kayak tour we paid 120,000 kip per person. Got there just before three o'clock in the afternoon and was completely surprised when the driver told us we'd be here in two hours. There was nothing to do since the lagoon was flooded with people! Pure tourist trap. The water was nice with a lovely blue colour but very cold.
