  • It is a beautiful cave, however difficult to visit if not well to leg or older person. Stones are sometimes smooth and one has to stoop deep in some places.

  • Very beautiful big cave. When we visited it was extremely quiet we never saw other people. I some places the ceiling was low. A bit disappointed though besause the lights to the lotus stalagmite were broke.
  • A beautiful cave with one way direction. The Cave is long with many nature-made shape like lotus flower, animals, or Buddhism flowers.
  • You should bring a portable speaker to blast some musics while chilling with friends in this extremely quiet cozy cave.
  • Decent show cave. I came here from Laos and after having seen the multiple amazing caves in Vang Vieng. This kind of looks okay. No adventure. well developed with lightening.
  • Cool caves. Worth checking out. The people at the entrance are friendly but pushy.
