Cave Collage

Laos Caves

Thomas and I have been crawling (and boating) our way through the caves of Laos, including: Kong Lor, Tham Phu Kham, Thom Pha Thok, Bank Cave, and Kao Rao. The country is full of caves. In fact, quite often while hiking through the forest, we’ve felt huge gusts of super-cooled air shooting out of the growth revealing yet another system of unexplored caverns. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of an organized spelunking infrastructure with experienced guides or caving classes. Too bad, because we would love to really get into this!

    Tony, this brings back memories of our great cave crawling, and worm crawling experience here in California.

  2. Oh, very cool. Actually, I’m rather uncomfortable underground, but I like the IDEA of spelunking.

    Karst formations, I assume. Any cave diving potential?

    Glow worms? C’mon, there’ve got to be glow worms!

  3. Yep, it should bring back memories. This was in celebration of my 40th birthday!!!

  4. No glow worms, Laurelle. But there were tons of bats and funky cave spiders.

    And we are already investigating new spelunking opportunities for the future!!!
