The idea was, to visit Nong Khiaw and then go for a short walk to a cave next to the village, as recommended by Lonely Planet. But everything turned out differently - the caves were not as close as expected and in there we had to survive complete darkness, had to cope with claustrophobia, fragile ladders and stuff like that. Beside of those borderline experiences we enjoyed the beautiful landscape, the loneliness in this area and the kindness of the local people. As if that hadn't been enough there was an amazing sunset over the river Nam Ou and we had some beers together with other travellers at a campfire. (See report at KFM.)
