On my return from Tham Nam cave I went to this cave. It's small cave with images of Buddha ( including reclining one) and huge bell outside. There is also a footprint on the wall supposed to be of Buddha.There is one elephant shaped stalactite on the wall that gave the cave the name. Not much time is required to... More

The cave is about a half hour walk from the middle of Vang Vieng. Nothing mind blowing, but I thought it was worth exploring on a slow day. Some steep stairs up to the cave entrance, and it's fairly well lit inside although I brought a headlamp and was glad I did. There's a good viewpoint of the city at... More

It's a good taster if you'd never been in a cave before, there is also a built in path you can follow which makes it less risky to walk. There is no need to pay for a guide though - it's pretty self-explanatory

My goodness! Had we gone in on our own, we'd have got into the initial chamber, seen the snail shaped rock, shone our torches around and then left. Our guide took us a fair way in. We had to squeeze through 2 rocks, and had I been on my own, I'd have looked at it and assumed it was the... More

The location that hotel we stay is away from this cave around 15-20 minutes. The cave will be closed around 16.00 hrs, be there before 16.00hrs to be sure you can get in. It costs you 15,000KIP for entrance fees, there are around 140 something steps if I'm not wrong. If you walk through the cave, you will see the... More

About a half an hour walk from the centre of town, it's a nice way to fill a couple of hours. The caves aren't the biggest but are quite interesting and not too difficult to navigate. Anyone with walking difficulties would struggle with the stairs though. Only downside is the feeling of being ripped off. 20,000LK to cross a bridge... More

A rather small cave u can probably explore in 20-30min. There are lights and paved path in there so its well set up for tourists. The view of the surrounding area at thr entrance is good though If uve seen many caves before this wont impress u Very wet and active cave in the wet seasons

I am not a cave person but this cave impressed me. Just rent a motorbike or push bike. No need for a guided tour. Entry 15000 kip p/p. The cave is really big and from outside the cave you have a beautiful view over the mountains.
