Asia has long been, for tourists, one of the most interesting and beautiful areas on the planet for exploring, and though Laos is perhaps not the most high profile of the countries in Asia, it offers some truly beautiful sites, and in this article we are discussing the caves which can be found in various parts of the country. The mountainous nature of Laos makes for some really interesting geography and exciting places to explore. It doesn’t have a coastline, so beach holidays aren’t on offer here, but don’t let that put you off as the stunning landscapes more than make up for it.
Konglor Cave – this is an amazing cave in Laos which offers over 7 km of limestone tunnels to explore which can be done with local guides, the tourism industry has cottoned on and there are places to stay nearby which can help you with exploring this stunning area.
Tham Pa Fa – the Buddha cave – this is another brilliant place to visit, the buddha cave of course has cultural and spiritual meanings as well as being truly wonderful to look around.
Vieng Xai – this is one of the most interesting historically as it served as shelter during wars when the US were bombing Laos, this network of caves has become like an underground dwelling and has a fascinating history.
Laos is a beautiful country and there are so many reasons to visit, but the Caves truly stand out as some of the most stunning and interesting wonders to look at in South East Asia.
