Trip Report Laos, Cave Loup (Tham Loup)

Jump to last reply

Leaving Elephant Cave we cross a man made log bridge then we are walking through muddy fields and pastures to our next destination. With fresh air and clear skies, I don't mind occasionally slipping in a cool mud hole.

Fortunate for us, we have a local guide with us because our carefree hiking may have stumbled us into a "sting operation". Thanks to his advance warning, we avoid a possible temporary change in identity as he navigates us around a massive active beehive.

A huge money transaction ($20,000) and we are equipped to venture into one of the dark sides of being in Laos. After climbing a set of stairs, we are given fair warning of what lies ahead.

Wearing just sandals that limits my ability to run, I am both nervous and excited as we descend into the abyss of Cave Loup.
