It was enjoyable...but the ceiling is really low during the rainy season. There were parts where my head was back as far as it could go and it was far too close to the rock above for my liking. My daughter properly freaked out as...More

My 6 old year daughter could also do tubing with some assistance! It’s good fun for one time! But it’s not something extraordinary! So would say just do it if you are in van vieng!

We were here in the rainy season so we're unable to complete the full cave. But what we did was sufficient. I am glad we got there early and had a short section that we were on our own before twenty or more tourists descended...More

Nice atmosphere in the cave - you go only only with your headlamp. You go with a rope but our guide took us to the end of the cave where it was simply magic! Try to avoid big group of people, you can go there...More
