The surroundings of Vang Vieng – caves and pseudo-lagoon

As I wrote in the article about Vang Vieng, around the city is full beauty, and therefore not necessarily to visit thousands of caves around the city. It is enough just to go beyond its outskirts and go eyes looking, enjoying the views, rocks and nature. We are basically so did.

Partially it happened because they didn’t immediately find a normal one. map of Vang Vieng, and partly because I do not really like walk underground.

Tham chang cave Cave (Tham Jang Cave)

Although I am wary of speleology, I’m liked the cave Tham chang cave (Tham Jang Cave). Probably those that it is lit, the tracks are laid. And also due to the fact that next to there is a lagoon with blue water and a small cave in which you can to swim in A long staircase leads to the cave entrance, and you can see the whole vang vieng. The cost of visiting 15.000 kip (60r).

By the way, if you were in Abkhazia in the New Athos cave, then Tham Chang Cave is like her, only on a smaller scale.

Everything else turned out that we forgot our flashlight at home. Have we were only a glowing phone with us, but a flash camera. True, they didn’t help us much, so we don’t began to go deep into the cave and retreated. Plus to us mooing Lao children, apparently offering for denyuzhku to lead us with a flashlight through the cave. But we did not dare, since they did not understand in their native language or in English due to problems with mental development. Generally it is normal, so children to exploit, especially with problems ?!
