Caving and discovering karst sites

caveThe unique and often stunning scenery of limestone mountains is characteristic for much of central and northern Laos. A distinctive geological feature of such a landscape is the multitude of complex cave systems and grottos formed over millions of years as consequence of underground drainage and dissolution of soluble rocks. These caves have their own flora and fauna too, adapted to the lack of light and a climate of constant coolness and damp air. A heaven for amateur and professional speleologists!
