The Directions

To reach the caves on foot, head out of town along the main road for about 3km. You’ll see the signpost on your right after about 30 minutes or so (most of the sign is in Lao, so look closely for ‘Pathok Caves’).

Top Descriptions

There are two caves here, one of which is much larger and better maintained than the other.
 
If you’ve written a description for Tham Pha Thok Caves you’d like to share with the community, send it to [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.

Top Tips

The main cave is obvious as there’s a large stairway leading to the entrance. To get to the second (much narrower and darker) cave, follow the path that hugs the cliff to the right of that stairway for about 100m.
If you forgot to bring a flashlight, with some persuasion the local guides will rent you theirs for LAK5,000.
To best explore the area properly, you might want to wear shoes of some sort (and consider hiring a guide). There are plenty of spiders around, and most likely some snakes too.
