Kong Lor Cave is an impressive 7.5km long river cave, which is visited by boat. The trip is easy, the water of the Hinboun River calm. The passages are up to 90m wide and 100m high. The cave is used by local villagers as an communication route.

The tour includes light walking so we recommend good shoes and appropriate clothes. Children, elderly people and those who cannot swim should bring life vests, probably they are provided by tour companies. Actually one change of clothes is also a good idea.
