Pak Ou Caves,
Laos, Luang Prabang and The North
Info : Pak Ou Caves
The Pak Ou Caves are located a couple of hours upstream from Luang Prabang and are visited by boat on most holidays to Laos. They can be visited as a return excursion from Luang Prabang or if you are travelling from the North of the country down to Luang Prabang by boat you will stop en route.
Pak Ou caves are home to many thousands of Buddha images that have been placed here by local people since the 16th century, when King Setthathirat found the caves and declared them a holy spot. Today many people still pay respect to this tradition.

Matt really listened to what we were looking for and our itinerary was a joint project making good use of his knowledge and experience. We were really impressed by how well most of the hotels and guides were integrated into their local communities and were particularly impressed by Pong who guided us in the north of Laos. He really went the extra mile to help us meet and talk with local people and he was clearly well known and liked in the villages we went to!
