Chom Ong cave is a recently rediscovered natural attraction located about 45 km from Oudomxay town near the Khmu Lu village of Ban Chom Ong Thai. Walking through the village already is an attraction as there are several people producing handicraft products as well as a blacksmith forging the lao machetes which you will see all over the place.

From the village it is a one-hour walk, to the cave up the creek through rice fields and lovely forest with various animals, insects and small birds. The Nam Kaang River flows through the lower areas of the cave system. It enters the system in the North of the 4 km long mountain stretch and rediscovers daylight at the southern end. The exploration tour usually leads you through parts of the dry section in the South. The exploration of Chom Ong Cave takes about four to six hours and is a real adventure as the cave is still in its natural state. Needless to say the tour will bring you in several stunning side passages of which one ends in a 18m drop down to the river passage.

The tour to Chom Ong Cave can be done as a two-day or as a three-day tour and brings you to the southern more easily accessible part of the fossil passage (see picture below). Also see the information flyer.

Level of difficulty and trail condition:
Easy walk buth the drive to the village is quite long (2 1/2hours) and bumpy due to the very bad road condition. This is also the reason for renting a 4x4 vehicle. Still sensitive tourists might get a back- oder headache.
