Exploring Caves in Laos

Laos is endowed with many caves and mountains.  If you have any interest in cave exploring, Laos would definitely be worth visiting.

While tourism in cave exploration is currently modest in numbers, there is growing interest.  Some groups have created dedicated websites to address the interest in this area and to provide points of contact for those who want to join in on an expedition.  It really does look quite exciting.
