East on Route 12/Laos

Introducing East on Route 12

Whether as a day trip or as part of the Loop, the first 22km of Rte 12 east of Tha Khaek is an area with several caves, an abandoned railway line and a couple of swimming spots. This is part of the vast Khammuan Limestone area, which stretches roughly between Rtes 12 and 8 and east towards Rte 8B. There are thousands of caves, sheer cliffs and jagged karst peaks.

All these places can be reached by tuk-tuk, bicycle or hired motorcycle.
