  • Very cold air inside the temple is located on the way up to DOI Chiang DAO of Chiang Saen. There is a mystery, but will go into the cave, the entrance fees, which are expensive.

  • 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.
  • First time to enter the Cave and it's so wonderful and not difficult for a family with young kids. Great experience!
  • For additional 120baht for electricity for lamp and 100baht tip for local guide, you get to see a more impressive side of the cave. However, do note that you will need to climb through small holes and steep stairs for the journey. Cave is very humid.
  • 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.

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.
