A facinating place of extreme beauty. It is set among beautiful karst limestone mountains that rise out of the rice fields like hulking monoliths. During the Secret War this area was the seat of command for the most powerful members of the Pathet Lao, the nationalist party that won the war and now runs the country. All over teh place there are caves which still house all the materials that were used in the war to allow the survival of the village people. At the time over 200 people lived underground in these caves and there are schools, meeting rooms, kitchens with hidden chimneys and much, much more. Facinating
