Tham Ting Caves
About 25 km up the Mekong River from Luang Prabang and at the mouth of Nam Ou River are the famous caves at Park Ou. The lower cave of the limestone cliff is crammed with a variety of Buddha images. The trip to Tham Ting caves is possible by boat or by “Tuk-tuk” - local taxis. A cruise would be more pleasant, more expensive and takes longer time, which will expose you to the riverside livelihood of local people.

During the “Pimai” festival, the caves are among the sacred destinations to where the King in the past, or the ruling authorities at present, would go to pay homage.
