We depart from your hotel to the north of Vang Vieng, transfer 14 km north to the amazing Tham Xang (Elephant Cave) which lies on the banks of the Nam Song River. It is an important Buddhist temple and owes its name to the remarkable limestone formations in the cave.

Next we head to the nearby Tham Hoi cave (Snail cave) which winds its way deep into the mountains. Here we spend 45 minutes exploring the numerous long corridors and wonderful limestone formations. We will also explore the Loop Cave and its amazing stalagmite formations before continuing on to Tam Nam (Water Cave).

At Tham Nam cave a cool pool of spring water lies at the mouth. It is a brilliant place to cool off by going for a swim! We tube through the cave which is full of water. In the dry season the water is completely crystal clear!
