PAK OU CAVES AND NAM OU RIVER

Near Pak Ou the Tham Ting and the Tham Theung are caves overlooking the Mekong River, 25 km to the north of Luang Prabang, Laos.

They are a group of two caves on the west side of the Mekong river, about two hours upstream from the centre of Luang Prabang, and are becoming well known to tourists.

The caves are noted for their miniature Buddha sculptures. Hundreds of very small and mostly damaged wooden Buddhist figures are laid out over the wall shelves. They take many different positions, including meditation, teaching, peace, rain, and reclining (nirvana).
