  • 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 »
  • City of caves. In addition to the beautiful already. The walk up to the Summit to pray and pay homage to the sacred is also creating fortune for your visit.

  • This is a great little find, a little off the beaten track but well worth the drive out of Chiang Mai, it takes about 40 mins. The is massive, deceptive from the small gated entrance. If you have a DSLR take a fast wide lens. In the carpark sometimes there are monkeys. Pair this attraction with a visit to the Sankhampang Hot Springs that are just a few KM's away and you will have a nice day out.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely worth it. Costs 30 baht to enter and an optional 20 baht for a flashlight which you don't really need. We used it to look in some crevices which was worth it. Up the 168 snake stairs you will find the cave entrance. Before going in the cave take a left and climb the 700 streps to the Buddha Chedi for a great view.
  • Yes! 30 baht? What a great deal! And then 10 baht to park your scooter. Kind of difficult stairs and such for older people, but if your knees are ok, go to see this! After exploring the cave, climb the 800 more stairs to the top of the mountain. Killer views, and monkeys! Value for money. Then, afterwards, if you are thinking about getting in the hot spring to ease your sore legs, make sure you read my review of that! Maybe the second hot spring around the corner is better value. Not sure. Go see this cave!
  • Pretty impressive, would recommend. ..just need good knees! Lots of steep narrow steps.
