Kathy Dal in Laos – Episode 9

I honestly don’t even know what this is…

Episode 9 – Kong Lor Village – ?

Kong Lor Cave

Along the Thakhek Loop one of the main attractions to stop and visit is Kong Lor Cave situated near the town of Ban Nahin. It’s a slight detour to get to, being a one road in and one road out kind of deal but definitely worth it. The cave is an amazing 7 km long limestone tunnel formed by the Hinboun River that you can even take a boat ride right through and out the other side.

Equalling interesting to the cave is the surrounding villages and farm land. The whole area is surrounded by a stunning jagged limestone ridge that circles around the village and closes it in, providing a pretty unique backdrop to the traditional farm houses and crops.  We spent a great deal of our time that day just wondering around looking at stuff…
