Well we decided as in the area we would check this out, local kids act as guides and want your money to go to caves. Climb into caves is interesting very steep in places, not much to see in the way of caves. It's up to you to visit I wouldn't recommend it but each to their own.
Have to pay 10.000 Kip to enter. There was no tickets issued. I guessed that we did not explore all 3 caves in that area. Was led by a boy into this cave with steep steps. He did asked for 20.000 Kip tips after the "tour". Ridiculous... We definately give less than that. Give it a miss!
A very informal tourist site so don't expect toilets, information, ticket booths etc. Bring a light or torch of some sought. Travelfish suggests you can hire them, but not sure where from. There are three caves to enter, first cave just over a rickety bamboo bridge is a tight scramble but fun to crawl around. The second has a large... 更多
We were traveling around with a guide for 9 days and he took us here. Not remarkable in many respects but when you find out that people survived in the cave for years and the only reason it didn't get bombed out was because of the surrounding hills, it puts it in to context. Drop in if you're passing and... 更多
We were ushered into the caves by a 20yr old guy and two 10yr old boys. We quickly realised this was a "guided tour" of sorts and felt very uncomfortable about it, especially when we asked the boys why they weren't at school that day and they replied they "don't go to school". We pretty much turned around and left... 更多
The caves are just 3kms from Nong Khiaw, a pleasant walk made even more enjoyable by the friendly greetings from people and kids passing by on the road. The entrance fee is a nominal 10,000 kip. There's a strong sense of history here, as the caves were used for sanctuary during the Vietnam War. After crossing the rickety bamboo bridge... 更多
Some teenagers asked us to pay 10.000 kip each (the free map of the area says it's 5000 as we later saw). They even didnt have tickets or a ticketbooth. They became agressive when I told them I wouldnt pay. Some other people we came across said that they just walked on. We turned around, we are not encouraging that... 更多
Easy to find, just follow the signs to the cave. You have to pay a small entrance fee and cross a bamboo bridge to get to the stairs. Cave itself is okay, but bring your own flashlight. When you're done exploring the cave, go down, face towards the cave and turn left on a small dirtpath. After a couple of... 更多
Not much of a cave, and very little signage detailing its history (the locals lived in the cave to avoid bombings during war), but the nearby scenery is nice. Admission 10,000, plus a local kid will ask for money to escort you to the cave, which I actually found helpful, and she was happy with 2000 kip.
