Discovery Kho Mường Village by motorbike for 1 day
On the road to Pu Luong Mountain Peak, there is a wild and simple valley called Kho Muong. It is one of the remote villages in Muong Son Commune, Ba Thuoc District which is also the poorest one in the area. However, it has great potential for commune tourism thanks to the natural conditions and cultural traditions of the local residents.
The road to the village is meandering because it is still in construction. One side is the cliffs, and the other is a deep end with yellow terraces and endless green forests. There are about 60 families living in the area, most of them Thai ethnic minorities. Traditionally, they earn their living by growing rice, and corn,... self-sufficiently. Thanks to the dominance in natural resources, they have trained themselves to turn the village into an attractive tourism destination.
Kho Muong Cave has another name Bat Cave (Hang Doi). It is because it is the home of many kinds of bats, at least four of them have been found at different times around the year. Entering deep into the cave, tourists will be attracted by hundreds of stalactites and stone blocks in variously strange shapes, in different magic colors. All create a lively and mysterious atmosphere.
