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.

  • An incredible place to visit, with impressive geological formations and altars to incredible Buddha, but ignore that it involves entering a dark, moist, and very large cavern where there are bats, large spiders and snakes, that travel involves slipping by damp tunnels inside the cave.

  • We came to the end of our first day of stay in Chiang Dao. The ticket prices are moderate for foreign as well as domestic tourists identical (which is not so common in Thailand) was very friendly and communicative staff which accompanied us through the cave and led and could easily answer almost all questions. The lead lasted about 45 minutes. This three pretty close culverts are to deal with, but could be mastered exquisitely through us. Only persons with restricted movement apparatus should not necessarily take this tour. There were countless bats to see and it was little operation, probably also because but what was that we this day's last visitors were. The tours end at 17:00.

  • This cave is also a temple so make sure you are not wearing a tank top. The gas light tour was good, costs an extra 100B for the lamp and 100B for the guide. The guides English wasn't great but that d...  read more »
  • Awesome place to visit, plenty of great spots to make awesome photos. Caves are very nice as well, expected them to be longer, mind you, for the average person they would be long enough, I just love caves! If you have any questions about the caves or area, just ask.
  • Very impressive cave structure. Guide was sort of limited in the descriptions she was giving but overall, well worth it Really enjoyed it and I have the scar to prove it. Bashed my head on the ceiling!
  • This turned out to be much better than expected. I was thinking a 'cave' would only be a 20 meter hole in the wall but this cave system is pretty vast. To get to some parts you have to pay for a guide and then the obligatory tip is expected as well. Bring a good flash light or head lamp and explore some of the cave on your own. It's interesting that this cave isn't as cool as you would think. It's a bit hot and humid.
  • Cave is very nice and big. They say that you need a guide. This is not true. But there are parts where they will not allow you to go without a guide. The trip with the guide is interesting, but nothing special.
  • Great caves. Go for the guided tour. It's worth it.
