  • The place is nice and clean but it's nothing special compare to other average caves. You can go inside and see interesting parts of the cave. Defiantly won't go to Chiang Dao only for the caves but as...  more »
  • In the caves offer guided tours for the price of 2. Take the more expensive-100 Baht + guide pay separately, we have 100 paid. This excursion goes 20 minutes, then offer themselves to go on point bridge deep into the cave.

  • This is the most easiest way to access a cave from Chiangmai. Only one-hour trip distance. The cave is also easy to get inside. You can bring your kids to experience and learn the nature. Enjoy!
  • Decent place, but a bit ironic. Women have to cover their shoulders and knees to enter bc it's a sacred place, but then you walk into the cave and there's garbage everywhere, a generator right next to a Buddha statue where people pray, and wires draped over another Buddha statue. Doesn't seem very sacred in there, but hey... The cave was nice. Don't pay the extra 200baht for the guided tour. Just walk down the stairs (discreetly) with a light and see for yourself.
  • Beautiful cave with several paths to choose. For some, we can walk without guides as they are lighted all the way.
  • Awesome cave to visit. Very beautiful. Great tour with a knowledgeable guide. Avoid the parasitic photographers.
  • Entrance fee to the cave : 40 Baht It's​ just a short path of lighted route. If you wanted to travel to other caverns inside, a guide is recommended, it will be additional 100 baht. However, there is nothing much to be seen. There are few temples surrounding the cave. Also at the back (to the toilet) there is a hiking trail.
