With a length of 7 km where the Nam Hun Bun River passes, this is also the route you can explore the cave called the “Geological Wonder of Southeast Asia”. Tham Kong Lo caves are up to 90 meters in height, so there is a large space in the cave. The lake, which emits turquoise light in the cave, is a sacred place of local people who believe that this lake is the skin of a god. The sparkling blue light also makes this cave more magical and attractive.  But whether Kong Kong Lo is beautiful or not, this place is definitely not for the weak- heart tourists.

Discovering the delights of the  Bolaven Plateau

Laos with its green hills and numerous cascading waterfalls will easily conquer the heart of tourists in the very first time. From the capital of Paksé in Southern Laos, you can reach Bolaven by renting a motorbike with a mapping paper on your hand. To discover Bolaven, there are two loops for you to choose from. Small bow can go within 3 days. Large arcades will go through many more rapids, which means the path will be more difficult, completed in about 5 days. However, in return, you will be able to see the beauty of nature as well as the gift of nature, multicultural ethnic villages, enjoy delicious food, home-made Arabica coffee and contact friendly local people. You won’t be able to say you’ve been to many places like this in your life when experiencing to stay at the simple but lovely homestays.
