Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
Explore the naturally illuminated caverns of Phraya Nakhon Cave. Rays of sun flowing in from openings at the roof light up the two caverns, making it a something of a surreal spot for pictures. Notice the natural stone bridges above the openings, which the wildlife use to scurry across overhead. The second cavern is famous for the Kuha Karuhas pavilion, originally built during King Rama V's reign in the 19th century. At certain times of day, the sunlight directly showers the altar, creating a mystical ambience. To visit Phraya Nakhon Cave and other attractions in Sam Roi Yot, use our Sam Roi Yot trip generator.

  • This cave is for my opinion one of the nicest in Thailand. Also the way to the cave is also very special. You need to climb two rocky hills to get there, through jungle forests with a beautiful view o...  read more »
  • That is the best place to go in Hua Hin . I spent 1.5 hour riding a motorbike to reach the place in the burning summer . However , the view totally worth it . The admission fee is 200 BAHT, and I recommend you spend another 200 BAHT for a boat ride to save time and energy for the slippery trail . The view of the big cave and the temple gives you a astonishing feeling about the nature and that will be the only reason for me to come back to Hua Hin . Awesome experience .
  • Wonderful landscape! To the cave you can walk about 1 hour or 2.5 km. Hard way up and down on slippery rocks. Or you take the boat and then just walk the last 500 m uphill and down the cave. However it is worth it!
  • 200 baht for entering the park. Thus ticket allow u to visit few other places too. 400 baht for the boat to bring u to another side beach, where u start to hike to the cave. Else you just need to hike up the staircase trail to the other side beach, which take about 30min. After u reach another side beach. It take u another 30~45min to the top, to the cave. This is the hard part. Bring enough water before u hike. It is worth it, all when u reach the cave and saw the temple (small hut) when the sun ray shine from the top (as shown in photo album).
  • Such a good workout for the beautiful temple, well worth the effort and would recommend the fost hoke over taking a boat (depending on your health) as it's got stunner views and sets you up for the rest of the hike.
  • Realy nice place. I walked all the way with flip flops 😄. The national park entry cost 200 baht, but that's ok. If you take the boat for 400 baht extra and they just bring you to the other beach where you have go to the cave. I saved the money and had a little warm-up for the hill. If you take the boat you have to climb up the hill also. The cave is huge and realy spectacular. The way is long and exhausting but it's ok if you reach the cave. 👍
