Sucked in by tales of the Blue Lagoon. Guide went too far ahead of us. Swimming? In muddy waist deep water. It took a long time to get to the big pool of water (Blue Lagoon) Rickety wood bridges/ladders.
definitely only do this climb is you have good shoes and are reasonably fit. Climbing in thongs or similar even in dry weather could be quite dangerous.
While a little challenging, the views from the top are definitely worthwhile and great value for 10,000 kip...More

You can walk here along the marked paths from the town which makes it a really great hike for a few hours. Firstly to the Pha Poak peak, scramble to the top up some ladders, not really that hard, it took us maybe 10 mins....More
We just loved the lusi cave. With the 10k kip entrance fee we got us a flash light and could explore the cave by ourselves. Quite scary because it's so dark and there was no one else inside. I think we spent an hour or...More
