Pak Ou Caves, Laos

Pak Ou Caves in northern Laos is located 25 kilometers from it’s closest city Luang Prabang. It is revered to be one of the most holiest sites in Laos, resulting in grand pilgrimages from all corners of the country. The caves are famous for their hundreds of Buddha sculptures, and the amazing view that overlooks the Mekong River.

The photographs below I took from the local village. The sun had just set and the sky was lighting up a gorgeous purple and orange colour. For these two panoramas, I took my tripod and waded out in the Mekong until I was waste deep in order to get the boats in the foreground with the limestone pillar as a backdrop.
