#supselfie in #laos while doing a #firstdescent down the #xebangfai river by #sup . There were certainly plenty of #rapids but a bit more water would have been appreciated. Low rainfall resulted in immense boulders and rockfalls requiring frequent porting of #sups support rafts and #camping gear. Not an easy task when the rocks are sharp, you’re thinking about #cobra #snakes and you’re exploring a country renowned for its high number of #uxo . Still, that’s what #expedition #travel is all about. And I was wearing my #minion helmet, so what could possibly go wrong? #supgirl #supadventure #suptravel #discovery #paddleboarding #paddleboard #adventuretravel #samatamagazine #supcations @supwildernessadventures @laostourism

Hanging around in caves, really big caves 😬

In the Xe Bang Fai

It's been a very interesting time on the road...

Everything in Xe Bang Fai cave is big. This colum was across from what is believed to be the largest rim pools ever discovered. The largest spider (by diameter) in the world has also been found inside this cave system. The Giant Huntsman spider. 7 new species have been discovered in this cave so far. A truly fascinating place.

The perfect camping spot. Got SUP, got tent. Got beer. Sorted! Arthur recently became one of the first to stand up paddleboard the Xe Bang Fai River as part of one of our adventures. Congratulations man! You worked HARD for that honour!

A very special place down a very difficult 'road'.

Emerging from a full day of paddling through a 7.5km long cave containing rapids in central Laos. Exhausted but elated that we were the first to paddle it by SUP. #cave #paddle #sup #paddleboarding #suptours #laos #xebangfai @stand.up.paddle @standuppaddlemagazine

Paddling through the entrance of Xe Bang Fai River Cave. These traditional long wooden boats can only row up the the second set of rapids as it is too much work to haul them over each rapid. To see further into the cave you must get an inflatable kayak.
We spent the day inside the cave and as we emerged back out the entrance, the afternoon light beautifully light up the jagged stalactite covered ceiling of the cave with swallows flying in and out overhead.

These camp invaders wore early morning alarm bells around their necks and left nice, steaming treats for us to find. Quite the novel way to be woken! #supholiday #suptour #suptravel #camping #waterbuffalo #laos #xebangfai #adventure #rivercamping #wildlifeencounters @laostourism @camping_culture @greendiscovery_laos

Sometimes, getting down the rapids is the biggest challenge of the day. A little More water would have been appreciated from the rain Gods on this particular day.

When slumber sends a chill up your spine. Sleeping rough before paddling the Xe Bang Fai River in Laos.

Paddling through Xe Bang Fai River Cave in Laos, one of the largest river caves in the world. There are about 7 rapids you must portage the kayak. This is at the other end of the cave, emerging back into the sunlight after a few hours paddling through a long winding underground river with some spectacular formations, including what is considered to be the largest rim pools ever discovered.

Its pretty remote so visiting requires some planning ahead. Guide coming soon.
Happy Earth Day!

The first time i visite a giant river cave, kayaking for 10km up the stream for hours in total darkness; one of the most peaceful moments in my life with my wife. Some times your just better away from everything. In xe bang fai cave south laos.

Looks like planet earth from space... In fact it is just a fraction of the Xe Bang Fai Cave entrance. Felt like it wasn't from earth 🌎

Llegar a la A-S-O-M-B-R-O-S-A cueva de Xe Bang Fai es una aventura únicamente para los más intrépidos. Llegar es difícil NO, LO SIGUIENTE: arena, baches, pendientes imposibles, ríos que debes cruzar en barcas 'muy estables'... vaya, una movidita. Pero vale muuuuucho la pena. ➡️Esta cueva es una de las más grandes del mundo con un río interior🌚. Mide más de 9'5km de largo y su boca parece la catedral de los sueños de Gaudí. 💒⛰️🎅🏼 #bangfai #xebangfai #bangfaicave #lao #laos #rtw #rtwtrip #viatge #viajeros #travel #instatravel #travelgram #travelblogger #travels #catalanspelmon #roadtrip #vueltaalmundo #voltaalmon #sudesteasiatico #asianroadtrip #takhek #takhekloop

Day 2: Thakhek to almost Ban Ning Pong 150k, 100k of which was unpaved driven in mud for about 5 hours. Made it 6.3 miles from my destination, the world's second largest river cave, Xe Bang Fai. Tourists only began coming here about 10 years ago when National Geographic did a piece on the cave. Though 10 years have passed since the 'discovery' it is still very off the beaten path, especially during wet season. The only truly scary moment was seeing about 15 men, un-uniformed walking with large rifles, then seeing another smaller group many k ahead and again another group which after spotting one man climbing into the jungle I could hear many singing. Other than that, life seemed pretty normal on this road. Unfortunately the road was too difficult in this time of year to make it further. After getting stuck four times I finally listened to the local who told me I couldn't make it on my own. Have heard mixed reviews about getting into the cave during wet season, have been turned down twice so far when asking for a boat, the last more animated then the first miming a sliced neck and water over the head. #thakhek #ningpong #bualapha #xebangfai #laos #motolife #motodreams #offroading #nationalgeographic #greendiscoverylaos #hondawave

After travelling for just under three months in Asia, I had the idea that a cave had to be an physical experience to be awesome, in the sense that I would have to crawl over/under rocks through it or bath in mud/hot spring inside.
My first experience not like that was the humongous Konglor, which was an absolute eye opener. Though I thought it probably was a one time thing, it took only two days, before i was visiting the Xe Bang Fai Cave. A cave only accessible by almost a 100km of shitty dirt road, but the visit was worth each centimetre. This cave was not as huge as the Konglor, but what it lacked in size it made up for in beauty.

Exploring the Xe Bang Fai Cave in Laos, close to the Vietnam border.

It is one of the largest river cave in the world, 7 km long and passages up to 120 m tall and 200 m wide. Along with impressive stalactites and stalagmites, the cave is the natural habitat of over tens of thousands bats (from what I've seen with my own astonished eyes). The locals believe Xe Bang Fai is inhabited by spirits, and perform various prayers and ceremonies to appease the mighty cave.

On the way to Xe Bang Fai Cave in Laos. This is day two on "The Big Loop"... Day 3 on a motorcycle. Definitely had some quick experience on this thing. On the way back from the cave in this spot.. We had to chose between a deeper river crossing or this shallower spot full of water buffalo. I chose the water buffalo and Clay chose the deeper crossing. The male buffalo turned on me at one point...we both made it out though. Loving the motorcycle! #motorcycle #mototouring #thebigloop #xebangfai #caves #pimai #laos
