Visit hin boun

Picturesque and tranquil, Hin Boun NPA is located in the Khammouane District of central Laos, right in the heart of an eponymous nature reserve known for its natural wonders. The area is with a rich diversity of species from macaques to bats, birds and even a few tigers and elephants. The lime karst scenery, and riverine life make it a great place to stop and drink in the beauty of nature for a night or two during a trip through southern Laos.

The sleepy settlement offers easy access to the famous Kong Lor Cave where imposing stalactites await, as well as to the nature reserve. The winding Hin Boun River offers plenty of opportunities for relaxing boat rides. You can visit villages, Prabaht Ponsan stupa and Ban Ton Na Mae market nearby for a glimpse into the daily life of ethnic H'mong minorities and their intricate and colourful dress, or simply while away time watching life on the river as boats pass you by and herds of buffaloes bathe on the sandbanks!

Things to See and Do in Hin Boun

Konglor Cave boat trip

Tham Kong Lor Cave (sometimes spelled Konglor Cave), hidden deep in the Phu Hin Boun wilderness of central Laos, is one of Southeast Asia's geological wonders. Otherworldly stalactites, spooky limestone formations, and ceilings over 300 feet tall make this flooded cave a highlight and bragging-point for many travelers in Laos.

Located 180 km by road from Thakhek, The Hin Boun river flowing out of a nondescript opening at the base of a towering cliff hints there may be something wondrous inside. It is in fact 7.5 kilometres of wonder - a river passage through solid rock, and travellers can traverse the entire length to the other side on an exhilarating boat ride.

Best Time to Visit Hin Boun

Best time to visit Hin Boun and Konglor Cave is during the period from October to middle of March where weather is not too hot and tropical fruits are for sale and scattered along the roads.
