“LUSI Cave”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Amazing cave! You get a guided tour through the cave since there are a few big holes where people could fall down.
Sometimes its very slippery... don't go with flipflops.
Please take flashlights! Including huge spiders.....

“staff is not good”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

Lusi cave should be open at 8 or 9 am. We arrived at 10:30 and then 15 minutes waiting for the staff and guide. The cave is very big and mysterious. But we do not understand why we can not get to the lagoon in the cave, if we pay for the entrance to the cave. To get to the lagoon we had to pay an extra 20,000 kip per person.

Great views from atop the caves and swimming is pleasant. Have to pay 10,000 kip to go inside (guide fee).

“Great scenery and walk”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

I really enjoyed our afternoon walk out to PhaPoak and Lusi caves.
Wear decent shoes if you plan to climb PhaPoak! It is steep and quite harzardous on the bamboo ladders. The view at the top is fantastic and worth the climb. Lusi Cave was excellent. It is huge and goes on and on. We only paid to go in the cave and didn't go to the lagoon. They make you take a guide due to the size. I loved the scenery and walk in the fields just to get here.

“The easy outdoors”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

On the other side of the bridge from the town, caves to the north are an easy half-day walk/climb/cave (completely separate from Chang cave). At the free bamboo bridge at the southern end of the little Saysong island, where Otherside/CliffView/Banana bungalows are, there's a path marked "Lusi Cave", which squeezes between them. This leads into padi fields, and the path is marked with white flags leading first to Pha Poak cave, where a villager will collect 10k kip for entry. This is a small, dry cave on the way up a little knoll with orange peak flag, approached via a dirt/rocky path/bamboo stairs. All the way up requires some scrambling and climbing for nice views and a sense of achievement, suitable for reasonably fit/healthy adventure. Continue following white flags for about 30 minutes through shady or open ground will lead to Lusi cave, where it's best to pay for the guide as they are familiar with the path so it's quicker and safer: a fellow traveler got lost in the pitch dark, but his flashlight batteries held. Some reasonably nice limestone features (but not spectacular) and 20 minutes later, a (calcium-rich) pool for swimming, then the long hike back to town. In all, reasonably safe and fun. Download the flashlight app on mobile phone for peace of mind.
