WELCOME TO LUANGPRABANG
Luang Prabang, the ancient capital of Luang Prabang Province in northern Laos, lies in a valley at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Inhabited for thousands of years, it was the royal capital of the country until 1975. It’s known for its many Buddhist temples, including the gilded Wat Xieng Thong, dating to the 16th century, and Wat Mai, once the residence of the head of Laotian Buddhism.

These two caves are located some 25km from Luangprabang where the Nam Ou river flow into the Mekong, the caves are revered throughout Laos and a very popular place for tourists and pilgrims alike.
