The Am Phu cave is actually a complex of several caves in the Marble mountains, connected by passages in the rock. There is a main entrance facing the street (ticket needed) with a staircase leading to an opening in the rock. The walls along the corridors and the caves are decorated with statues and stone carvings. The largest cave in Am Phu is much smaller than the Huyen Khong cave. From here a passage leads to a deeper section in the cave system, while another passage leads via a staircase to the open air, from where there is a nice panoramic view over the surroundings. Everywhere in the cave there are shrines and altars.
