Pak Ou caves

Pak Ou caves 

Upstream on the Mekong River from Luang Prabang are the Pak Ou caves. They're now a tourist destination, but for aeons they have been a revered Buddhist shrine where people have left statues of the Buddha, some now exceedingly old. (See the PiPs.) Best viewed large. Click here for a view from the caves.

HFF everyone, stay safe and have a great weekend.

Explored.

Thank you, Christa. This was the height of the tropical wet season and the Mekong was at flood levels, so flowing quickly and very muddy.

Hi George

A very nice and amazing set of pictures, which I like very much indeed.

Fantastic colours and wonderful composition too.

It must be a great memory for you of a 'once in a lifetime' trip.

(And I saw a fence as a handrail for the stairs..)

Best Wishes, HFF, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
