The Cave of Teeth

Hidden in the mountains about an hour drive outside of Luang Prabang, the Cave of Teeth (or Tham Khieo as its known locally), is rarely visited with a history shrouded in mystery.  Possibly a cave used by the Pathet Lao during the Indochina War, rumours include that it may have been used to house American POWs during this time.   Containing old display cases included both human and animal teeth, the cave itself is also worth exploring as it winds its way down into the mountain. Check out these two videos for a first-hand experience.

      Hi – I think it is located off the road from Route 13N to Phonxai (Tham Khieo – N19.96531 E102.42665)
