What To Expect

One of the most respected holy sites in Laos, Pak Ou Caves have a history dating back thousands of years. Packed with over 4,000 Buddha icons, the caves – a shrine to the river spirit and Lord Buddha – a set in a dramatic limestone cliff at the point where the Mekong joins the Nam Ou River. Pak Ou means “mouth of the Ou River’ with the first cave entrance of Tham Ting being very visible from the water; the higher cave is accessed by stairs. The Buddha images in the Pak Ou Caves assume a variety of positions, from meditation to peace and nirvana (the reclining Buddha). Both caves are shrines to Buddha, offering places of worship with the largest image in Tham Ting being a popular place to burn incense and offer prayers. The smaller cave is the more peaceful, with glimpses of the Mekong providing a breathtaking backdrop.
