To reach our next destination we relied this time completely on local transportation as we considered the tourist transport to be a bit too expensive. Other than that, we like to travel with the locals. This meant that we had to use a chain of vehicles: walking to the small busstation - city bus to the interprovincial busstation - bus to the crossroad of the roads 13 and 8 (simultaneously a cargo bus for bags full of lime) - Songteaw ("Tuktuk-bus") to the village of Na Hin - Songteaw to Kong Lo village. After 8 hot and sweaty hours we arrived under the marvelling eyes of our fellow passengers in Kong Lo. This village could win the award for the friendliest place in Laos . As we strolled past the wooden huts literally everyone greeted us, weaving and smiling. The next day we encountered our Indina-Jones-adventure. The cave of Kong Lo consists of a 7.5 km long tunnel with cathedral-like cavities, connected through a river. In a shabby wooden boat we floated through the darkness past huge stalactites and bizarre rock formations. A fantastic reward for our adventurous journey.
