  • This is a nice cave to vist and we are the only tourists. Quite a clime up the hill to the entrance. As we are the first visitores of the day (24 july 2017) the guide is running before us to the entra...  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.

  • After a climb of almost 900 meters. You come then at the cave. He is not lit so a good flashlight is advisable. It is a very large cave. You are there about 20 minutes inside. It is advisable to combine with the erdwan waterfall. Because then you pay the rate but 1 time. Remember it's really almost 900 metres climbing so pretty harsh. But well worth

  • 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.
  • 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. Cave photography by megaworldasia - south east asia off the beaten track.
  • Amazingly beautiful. And a mini adventure. At only 30 Baht also a real bargain. Many interconnected caves and well lit grottos . Steep climbing but 100% save and manageable. Even for toddlers
  • Good
  • A beautiful cave with stalactites Multiple formats to visit must go before 16.00 p.m. because the navigation officer, takes approximately 30 minutes, depending if the approximately 30-minute visits to caves.
