  • Spectacular place - temple within the cave. In addition you Can hire a guide (200bahts) and rent a gas lamp (additional 200bahts) to see the cave. If you are not physically capable or you have claustr...  more »
  • Very small but pretty temple right outside caves. There is a very blue lake outside where you can make merit by feeding the large fish that live there. Plenty of little Thai shops and restaurants surr...  more »

  • 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.

Where to stay in Chiang Dao

Chiang Dao lodgings range from backpacker rooms to cozy resorts, so there is something for every budget. The town remains a perfect getaway for tourists wanting to escape crowds and explore Thailand's untamed wilderness, and some guesthouses are set in the jungle to provide easy access to those unspoiled areas. In true Thai spirit, guesthouses are warmly decorated and run by friendly staff, though many rooms often share bathrooms and offer no air conditioning. If you plan to visit at the peak of the season, reserve your accommodations in advance and expect higher prices for both rooms and bike rentals.
