  • Hope you are physically fit because this cave is a tough one to get to. We rented a scooter and drove out to the countryside for some exploration. When we got to the top of this mountain the view was ...  more »
  • The temperature of any cave is equal to the average temperature at the surface. So, this is not a cold cave but warm. Lots of steps and nothing compared to, say, Carlsbad Caverns, but interesting.  more »
  • Muang on cave is definitely worth a visit to say you have experienced being under a mountain. It is cheap to get in - 20bt to hire a torch although you don't really need it as quite well lit. Probably...  more »
  • Really cool here! Cave goes down 200ft in total and has a shrine at the bottom! Theres also a peak you can climb and at the top it has some beautiful views
  • Very nice place! Besides cave there's so beautiful spot if go upstairs. Friendly stuff, nice food. Also can rent a torch to go to cave, right there 30 thb. Recommended!
  • This cave is massive inside takes around 100 steps to get upto the cave. You then climb down stairs to get into it. You will be surprised by the size of it. It has fossilised turtle and apparently a fossilised dinosaur. After you have seen the gave you can climb to the top which is about 800 steps. And yes it's very tiring with the heat. You can buy a bottle of water from the bottom for around 20b and the fee for the cave is 30b which is around 60p in £
  • Sacred Chedi containing Lord Buddha hair. Perfect place for pilgrimage.
  • Highly recommended! IMHO this cave is much nicer than other more "famous" ones north of Chiang Mai. It is very large, well lit and not at all crowded. It will make for good exercise as you must hike up a steep stairway to the entrance and then down another one into the cave. Nearby at the base of the mountain is a small interesting temple with a mural (poster) on the history of the Thai kingdoms and royal families.
