Northern Lao - European
Cave Project 


Welcome to the Northern Lao - European Cave Project !

We are a team of European cavers that explores caves in Laos since the year 2000. We want to achieve an overview of caving areas located in the Northern provinces. Cavers of all nations are welcome  to contribute to our mission. We cooperate with the local authorities and development projects and promote cave eco-tourism as part of conservation and contribution to the local economy.
