CAVE IN XAYSOMBOUN
 
CHAO ANOUVONG CAVES
Chao Anouvong Caves is located in Phouhuaxang Village, about 4 kilometers north of Anouvong Town. This area is surrounded by a number of mountains and Nam Jang River flows through the caves. There are two caves located close to each other; one is 7 meters high, 4 meters wide and 30 meters long; the other is 3,5 meters high, 5 meters wide and 300 meters long. The second cave has an interesting history as it has been told that King Anouvong stayed there in order to hide himself from Siamese army. In spite of a small force of King Anouvong, he eventually succeeded to escape and set up his strong hold at the river bank of Nam Jang or recently called “Nam Ja”.
