Khao Mai Kaew Cave, Ko Lanta

(3.9/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Put on a headlamp and prepare for an adventurous trek through Khao Mai Kaew Cave. The cave itself is dark, muddy, and slippery, and you'll be climbing ladders, pushing and crawling through small openings, walking across bamboo bridges, and encountering bats, large cave spiders, frogs, and other critters along the way. Once inside the cave, reward yourself with a swim in the cave pools, among the stalactite and stalagmite formations. Note that this is not for the faint of heart--even the climb to the cave can be quite demanding. Wear older clothes and comfortable shoes. Using our world travel planner, Ko Lanta attractions like Khao Mai Kaew Cave can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • See koh lanta to change all other activities. C is a good time... 2 hours total 1 to access the cave the other inside. I would highly recommend. The guide is super friendly the place is beautiful. However careful we are moving with headlamps in a not very slippery safe... Better predict your sneakers! You crawl we s sit climb predict rotten held... not necessarily accessible to young children and people corpulent... narrow passages and crossings in the jungle-like to l climbing... C is a perfect activity to see absolutely.

  • A half an hour walk to get to the entrance of the cave. Entry of 300 bath with a guide (compulsory and indispensable). 1 hour in the basement with our guide who gave us a lot of explanations, did a body painting on a person in the group. 1 half hour for the return. Very nice especially when it's hot. It changes a bit like activity!
