“worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

The caves were interesting to see, they are HUGE and takes about 15 minutes to walk through them, but be aware that you have to climb about 140 stairs to get to the top.

“a more than average limestone cave?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

March 2013 - This is just a limestone cave - with a lot of steps leading up to it! What makes it different is that it is extensive and sympathetically lit, although photographers will wish some of the light sources were better concealed. What I like about the lighting is that it is all white so the effect is natural, I have been to other caves in Laos where coloured lights are used - very pretty but not natural - hence 4 stars not 3.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

If you have been to caves before don't bother.
Just a cave at the end of a very large staircase.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
Although it is located in a nice parkland setting.

“Panoramic view from the cave”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Contrary to some other reviews, I liked the visit of the cave. It is a lovely walk or bikeride from the center. Yes, you have to walk up quite a few stairs to the entrance, but you are rewarded by a very fantatistic view of the countryside: the Nam Ou river, the ricepaddies and the limestone mountains. From a gap in the cave you will have an even better view. And there is a cool spring at the foot of the cave where you can have a swim on a hot day. If you want to explore the cave, don't forget to bring a torch (flashlight).

“Interesting But Can Be Passed Over”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

A somewhat interesting stop in the area, but for all the trouble of getting there and the climb to the cave, I would suggest passing on this attraction. Now if you are one who simply has to see everything that is available, this is definitely for you.
