Vieng Phouka, Luang Nam Tha, Laos 2006, Pt 2

This is Part 2 of the caving expedition to Vieng Phouka in Luang Nam Tha, northern Laos, in Feb 2006. See Part 1.

Every time we went to a new area we stopped in the village to talk to the head man and get guides. This is a White Hmong village

We went to Tham Pasat Thia 1. Normally cave passages are large but this one had a small section

Each night after dinner the survey data was entered in the computer. The electricity was supplied by a generator for just a few hours each day.

Whilst waiting for us to finish caving, the guides kept themselves amused

A phallic stal!

We were watched as we walked to Tham Kuat

Tham Nam Eng is the biggest cave in the area and is used for ecotourism.
