  • Very beautiful temple complex next to the Chiang Dao caves. Totally relaxed atmosphere. Outside the temple there are restaurants and small stalls/shops where you can buy local medicinal herbs and teas and try.

  • Cool cave. Unguided portions lit by multi colored electric lights, however to see the majority you'll need to hire a local guide inside the cave. 100 baht per person when we went. The guides carry a kerosene lamp which adds to the ambiance and ours at least seemed genuinely pleased with her job. 4 Stars as it wasn't quite as impressive as Tham Lot farther along the Mae Hong Son Loop.
  • There are definitely better caves in Thailand but I guess the kerosene lamp tour is kind of cool. If its your first cave, it's worth it. But if you've been to other caves in Mae Hong Song, you'll be a little disappointed.
  • Nice and easy walk into a well lit cave (no need for additional light that you can find at the entrance). Inside you'll find different Buddhist statutes as its also a worship place. Plenty of parking outside, plus a park, some temples and souvenir shops
  • A popular destination for visitors to northern Thailand. The cave is ok, has some mythical history with good lighting in the main area (short walking distance). You can see much more of the cave with a guide (fee) but there is no electricity in that part. The guide uses a gas lamp so views are limited and can be a little rushed depending on the guide. This is the easiest cave to visit in the area but there are much better ones IMHO. There are some other interesting temples, things to see and do in the vicinity of Wat Tham Chiang Dao, go explore!
  • There's some beautiful sites to see as you walk from the parking area to the caves. The caves aren't all that exciting but there's some history to appreciate. The guide is definitely worth it as you get to see much more areas and crawl through some narrow spaces.
