Cruise to Pak Ou Caves
- Cruise on a long-tail wooden boat – a typical boat of Laos – and admire the life of Mekong along the river.
- Visit Pak Ou caves with 2 limestone grottoes and house to nearly 4,000 sacred Buddhist statues of all sizes.
Enjoy a half-day river cruise to the famed Pak Ou Caves. Board a long-tail boat and begin cruising past scenes of typical Laotian villages barely visible behind thick foliage, wooden canoes bobbing by the shore attached to bamboo poles and floats marking the location of nets and fish traps. Explore the two limestone grottoes which house approximately 4,000 sacred Buddhist statues and images which range from mere centimetres up to 2m (7ft) in height. Return to Luang Prabang by cruise with a stop en route at the village of Ban Muang Keo and observe local weavers and whisky distillers honoring their timeworn traditional crafts.
