Take a boat from Luang Prabang. Along the way you can witness how people along the river make a living. Once there, you have to climb up in one cave and then the other to access and see the Buddha statues, big and small, some...More
We booked at an agency on the Main Street and we were picked up at our hotel ( which turned out to be walking distance!) the boat was very spacious with seating and places to stand. Our guideMr Saengkeo was delightful and explained the trip...More
Just got back from visiting this place. Ok, to be fair, I found the boat ride itself quite pleasant - approximately an hour and a half going there and an hour coming back. I booked the boat all to myself so just kicked back, enjoy...More
It takes around 4 hrs for this trip. 2 hrs to go there, 1 hr back. Not worth it. There are just 2 small caves with lots of buddha inside. It's better to spending time in the town or go to Kuang Si waterfall.

hi, there are quite a few steps up to the cave itself and they were a bit slippery when we were there. even so I wouldn't miss going to the caves. you can see inside a bit from the landing place, well worth it, and maybe a couple of steps will allow you to see even more. also we saw elephants bathing in the river on the opposite bank to the caves. Can't garentee that but the trip up the river is worth it anyway.
