Pathet Lao Caves (videos)

Just to show you how times have changed, the caves of the Pathet Lao leaders during the civil war years are open to the public.  The tours have been around for at least 10 years though.  And at the beginning, it probably received very few visitors.  But for those who are adventurous enough to go to the northern parts of Laos and for war history buffs, this could be a place well worth the visit.

If you do visit the caves, the surrounding areas will also have some of the old buildings used by the former leaders as well.  Also of note, many caves in Huaphan province are open for exploration.

Here's a couple of videos we found on Youtube showing them.
