Khao Mai Kaew Cave, Ko Lanta
(4/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Although the price is 300 Baht it is absolutely worth it! You will walk in the jungle for half an hour which is great, because you'll see a small waterfall and climb it. Don't bother about your clothe...  more »
  • A visit that you can't lose .... you dive from the boat armed with vests and underwater camera to try their hand at one of the best experiences of your life. After entering the mouth of the cave (you go to precise times and low merea because with that high the mouth of the cave is flooded) swimming for 85mt between stalactites and emerald reflections of rays that filter under the water. The boy will guide shows the way with torch and eventually emerges in a Heavenly beach and surrounded by high walls around its perimeter. A unique and unrepeatable experience that will always remain in the drawer of the best memories. Not to be missed!

  • We are not arrived at the cave. On the way there one is started outside a restaurant by a lady, pointing to an even handcrafted sign, which says "no entry without guide". We wanted to give you to understand, we need no guide 1 because is to explore the cave without a guide, because the roads are very well signposted 2. We commit experience in the caves and that we our own equipment with 3. after we it have it loud and rude. We wanted to negotiate then with her the 300baht per person (because absolutely nothing was going on), then it was still rude. We then decided to go back. There were two people who also wanted to make the tour. These are just left after discussion with the Lady through the "barrier". Then she has phoned - home to the people to start somewhere anyone and the go to move? Too bad that simply all as much as possible of the pie wants and can't get enough can... :-/
