Chiang Dao Cave, Chiang Dao

(320+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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. See Chiang Dao Cave and all Chiang Dao has to offer by arranging your trip with our Chiang Dao vacation planner.

  • You can see a beautifully landscaped cave temple with many hidden shrines and statues (including the alleged fossilized remains of a giant) and fields mouse colonies. The tour of the cave was well managed and it has been very much fun to wander with a Petroliumlampe through the cave. We were there with the family (total 6 adults) and our 2 young children (age 2 + 3 years). All in all with the kids especially since it was well within a small adventure for everyone. A very nice trip away from Chiang Mai.

  • After having climbed a few steps, the underground tour can begin. small temple in the rock, statues, path, minimal light, moist heat, stalactites, beautiful rooms decorated carved for thousands of years, at the bottom of a hole, water and some fish can be observed, the visit ends in a room or you can find various statues and a lying Buddha. many pilgrims visit this site

  • Maggie was such a wonderful host! My boyfriend and I had a great time in Chiang Dao seeing the cave and temples and hot springs but I think our favorite part of our stay was our accommodations in one of Maggie's charming roundhouses! We enjoyed hanging around the roundhouses taking in the scenery just as much as we did getting out and exploring. Maggie has built a truly unique place to share with guests. I highly recommend it for your future stays in Chiang Dao!
  • Was really impressed, this place was wonderful. The roundhouses are gorgeous and really feel like home, the breakfast.. the view.. the area .. I just loved staying here - see you again Maggie
  • Amazing place, run by the sweetest old lady!
  • Perfect!! Maggie is a very nice lady. All recommend accommodation here.
