My relative took us to Vang Vieng Resort to visit Tum Jung. It’s on the other side of this red wooden bridge, and when I saw the flight of steps, I thought it’d be best for us to have lunch first since it was late in the afternoon, and the local restaurant is nearby.
The steps seem a bit steep, and when my dad saw that the mouth of the cave is at the top of these steps, he didn’t care to see the cave anymore and my relative also backed out, so it was just my little cousin and I exploring the cave together, but luckily there were others that were visiting the cave at the same time as us, so we had company.
If these walls could talk, I’m sure it has lots of story to tell because Tum Jung has a long history and was once a hideout for locals against invading armies.
It has a total of 174 steps to get to the top, and inside the chambers are dimly lit by electricity, and on the other side of the cave has an opening, and at this point, I was so happy to walk towards the bright light, and the view from the top of the cave is absolutely beautiful.
At the bottom near the exit, there is a place for worshiping.
