Once inside, we had to pull ourselves along in single file with a desigated rope attached to the rocks.We negotiated numerous Stalactites and a very strong current for 500m, what a workout!
We moored the kayaks and walked 20 minutes to a clear blue pool and the tiniest opening to a cave. We were each handed a tube to sit on, we were going in!
Pulling yourself through an underwater cave sounded fun, and it was! I’m glad we had a waterproof camera to capture it all.
When I saw the small gap we were going through I gulped. My reservations were quickly reasurred when the tour guide handed me a head torch with 2 live wires hanging – the Laos version of an on switch!
I wonder how many thousands of years it’s taken to form these beautiful shapes. And how long they went undiscovered. Amazing really.
As we explored the inside of the cave, we had to be careful not to hit our heads on the rocks leading into the smaller openings.
