Spend a lazy day out at Fish Cave. Don’t be misled by the name, as there is no actual “cave” here, it’s simply a small underground stream emerging from the rocks Fish Cave. The stream is filled with freshwater fish (mainly carp) and you’ll notice there is a small shrine near the cave because this species is held in special regard by locals. Bags of fish food can be bought nearby if you want to feed the fish, and the nearby scenery is pleasant, with open grounds suitable for a picnic. A visit to Fish Cave represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mae Hong Son vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Not much fish to feed. Not worth 200 THB entrance fee for foreigners. The vibe are ok. Not really amazing. Would not visit again. 
  • If nature does not like to miss the visit here, clear creeks until you see the floor and a wide variety of fish. Tall tree many relaxing rest Park. Cave fish is always inside a lot until a shiny black vague, vaguely, as well.

  • Fish cave is 19 kilometers in north of Maehongson. Ticket fee 40 baht for Thai and 400 baht for foreigner. I think it's not value of price for foreigner. 
  • This little spot is beautiful. The cave is the head water for a small stream or river. In this water is a special fish that is believed to be sacred. The fish are fed but never caught to be eaten. Some of the fish are quite large. Where the water comes rushing out of the mountain in the cave the fish like to congregate. There are so many fish - most large - side by side. When you through bits of bread in the water the fish go crazy trying to get the bread. Sounds simple - but the park is beautiful and seeing the fish in the cave is quite something to behold. Stop and see it - don't drive by. Thirty minutes and walking and viewing and it will brighten your day and trip.
  • It's OK if your board
  • Nice
