  • This cave took a lot of energy to hike up to but it was worth it! After a tight squeeze into the entrance (breathe in!) it opens up into a magical world of stalagmites and stalactites. The guide didn'...  more »

  • Very beautiful cave. The steep climb is worth. The entrance is very narrow. After that you can move around but return to normal. There are bats in the cave.

  • The cave is gorgeous and massive But the hike is really tough if you're not aware of the fact it's only 600 meters but ALL of those are steep stairs. Best to do early. It also costs a lot but is included in Erawan Waterfall of you do both in the same day.
  • The cave is GIANT and gorgeous! Worth it. The stairs up made us almost turn it around three times though. ROUGH! Be ready.
  • Charm & clean cave. Breathe easily different from other cave because of crickets that kept the bats masses throughout the day. Lighting system uses power from solar panel to LED lamp.
  • keep your ticket from the waterfalls and present the ticket to the staff! Wait outside the cave and staffs will lead you to the cave.
  • If you are a person who likes caves then this cave is probably the best in this area and is well worth the effort of making the long drive up from Kanchanaburi or across from the other more well-known attractions along Hwy # 323. Having been to numerous other cave sites all over Thailand I would say this cave is definitely near the top of the to do list. Although not an overly long penetration it’s sheer internal volume is remarkably impressive. The cave excursion has been very well set-up for visitation by the park authorities and although there is a fairly demanding hike of 600 meters up to the entrance, the cement stairway is solid and not difficult to ascend. NOTE: the visitation fee for foreigners is 300 THB and is paid at the check-point near the car park before ascending. Once at the cave entrance you’ll be greeted by a local guide who unfortunately speaks virtually no English. There is currently no lighting within the cave so if you don’t have your own torches, you’ll be escorted by the guide with a kerosene lamp. The lamps actually emit a good deal of light and create a nice orange glow within the cave. There is a tight squeeze to negotiate to enter the cave but once through it soon opens up to a massive chamber inside with the highest section being approx. 30 meters above the cave floor. There is a very well-constructed cement track, with steel handrails, which does a circuit right through the cave. The furthest section of the cave is approx. 200 meters from the entrance with the track going right to far end before circling back to the exit. The cave has some very impressive formations at both ends where the cave roof is lower but the central area is a massive black void. Very well worth the effort of going there.
