Chiang Dao Cave, Chiang Dao

#2 of 11 in Things to do in Chiang Dao
Chiang Dao Cave makes an interesting way to view Thailand's underground treasures. The site consists of over 100 caves, but you can only enter a handful safely. On your own, you can explore two simpler caverns that remain lit up for visitors; to see three others, you'll need to rent a gas lantern. Tour guides are optional but highly recommended if you want to spot the highlights of the caves, such as crystals and limestone formations. Wear old clothes and closed-toed shoes, and expect to crawl through small openings occasionally. Note that the temperature is cooler in the caves, so dress accordingly. For Chiang Dao Cave and beyond, use our Chiang Dao sightseeing tool to get the most from your Chiang Dao vacation.
