Pak Ou Caves
The Pak Ou Caves are one of the most treasured religious symbols of Luang Prabang Province. Several legends tell stories of this site where, over the years, thousands of Buddha statues have been deposited.
The entrance to the caves is a masterpiece. The stairs, even though they are steep, are well looked after and equipped for many visitors. This religious site is very much visited today by tourists, so please do not expect to be on your own.
You will be pleased to discover these two caves for their individual character as well as for the 4000 statues representing Buddha in all shapes and sizes.
