Ban Na Tan village, 2 km from upstream entrance of Konglor cave
After roughly one hour driving and puching the boat inside the case we emerged from its upstream side, in another valley divided a mountain away from the valley we came from. We walked along the Hinbuon river on a foot path to Ban Na Tan - a small village.
A kitchen in a Ban Na Tan house
Peoples of Ban Na Tan produce rice for their own consumption. Corn is sold to outside. Some villagers grow tobacco to sell. They also have cows and buffalos, chicken, pigs, ducks and goats. In this kitchen you can see a fire place (they use wood fire for cooking), preserved bamboo shoots in the bottles, and few dried corn.

At that night we stayed at Sala Konglor - accommodation for tourists in Ban Tiou village - also on Hinboun river bank. At that time they had a room with private bath, and more rooms with common shower, all are made of wood and bamboo.
Ban Tiou village
A very simple house in Ban Tiou made of wood and bamboo. Ban Tiou is a small village. All families are rice farmers. They also keep goats and ducks, small plots of vegetable around their houses; and some have their own boats. As a riverside village water is picked from the river. Tobaco plants farming was also seen.
