Khao Mai Kaew Cave, Ko Lanta
(3.9/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • We drove here by accident along and decided for 300 baht per person with the tour to go along. We started with an uphill walk through the jungle and went after the cave in. A large cave where we climbed through about 1-2 hours (also close pieces). Our guide came already in the cave of childhood and told all kinds of stories. We found it's definitely a fat experience and worth the effort! Things that are useful to take away: clothes dirty may be Anti mosquitoes stuff good shoes Water (you can also buy evt)

  • 带父母出行,收费300铢/人,当地村民自己拦路收费,不过会提供头灯和导游(如果自己走,根本就找不到进去的路),没想到雨林中的道路非常崎岖,对女生来说难度很大,道路湿滑,有些地方较为危险。不适合老人和不善攀爬的人。中途因为考虑到父母和危险性自己决定返回,村民老板也未部分退钱,当个经历吧。。 兰塔岛上供游玩的我知道的有3个洞穴,这是一个,中部有个老虎洞(TIGER CAVE),村民也是自行拦路收费20...  more »
  • If you leave a little excitement and physical activity, you might want to make the cave tour. Want to walk a little baggage, which may in time for the heart in the chest. The cave descend from a small taituroidaan on the slippery ladder out from behind the trees, and with stones, and, in the darkness of the headlamps. A number of kämmenenkokoisia spiders spotted quite vierestäni-lempakoitakin were. You should put your sneakers on his feet, then the expenditure is more comfortably. You should also be prepared for the fact that the clothes will go like mutaiseksi, because the cave is to crawl;) Functional clothing on top of and sense of adventure!
