Tham Phu Kham is a cave to the northwest of Vang Vieng, Laos, located just to the northeast of the village of Ban Na Thong. Its name means "Blue Lagoon" due to its blue waters.[1] The cave is revered by the locals and contains several Buddha images.[2] The largest is a reclining bronze Thai Buddha in the main cave.[1]
