Narrow entrance to a cave
A narrow entrance to a cave near the village. Several caves were found in the area, and are open to visitors. Bring torch lights or candals into the cave for lighting.

Flowers again
Flowers again as we prepared to leave the village for a walk down the dirt road. The scenes of fruits, vegetables, flowers, rice and corn fields, the green hills and the simple lives of local people tell us something about relationship between us and the earth.

Down the dirt road to the town finally
However we were finally leaving behind us this beautiful place. We walked down the winding dirt road for several kilometers to the point near the Taphoen Khi waterfall where our pick up truck would be waiting to take us back to town.
