  • On the way to the plantation you are beside a temple about 1300 years with a stroll in the hollow of the mountain children accompany you, monkeys are at the entrance. The path is a tuk tuk, car or scooter. Beautiful ballad

  • It's a nice temple, but if you're not very caving, it didn't interest (the children will take a ride in the caves if you know you want to and are not claustrophobic). However, the surrounding landscape is beautiful. If you rent a scooter, be careful because the path is very rocky and very muddy in places. As it is the same side that the Plantation, I advise you to rent a scooter and do both subsequently, being careful not to die! :)

  • After a bumpy road, we finally reach the place of interest. There they have many kids that will love to show you the cave and explain what you will get to see. At the entrance, you need to pay a USD1/...  more »

  • Nice walking place. Shame they charge for parking and entrance. Temples and nature should be free as they are. But a nice small hole up and down.
  • Great holy place. Yes, now it's abandoned, but somebody can feel the vibe and saw hidden beauty.
  • Small! You've done it in 10 min. But quiet good, 1 $pp for the entry
  • Entrance fee US$1/person. Need to climb some steps up and then down to arrive the limestone cave. Local kid shown us the way to get inside the temple. Interesting trip. Nice view of the surrounding areas .
  • Closed today for filming 8/2/17 but there is another cave you can visit really close by...lots of kids around to show the way with impeccable English...and a cafe for the all important iced coffee ☆
