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.
