... were determined to keep our fluid levels up and quickly finished off several litres of bottled water requiring frequent visits to the bathroom for a welcome relief!

As the afternoon wore on and the 160km distance to Luang Prabang quickly reduced, we came across Pak Ou Caves in the cliff face opposite the Tam Ting village on the other bank. We disembarked temporarily to explore this ancient cave which has served as a Buddhist Temple for ...

... more. There were a bunch of locals on the boat who we dropped off on the way. It was interesting to see where they would get off.

After finding a much better place we took a stroll around this really small village to check it out.
