  • 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
  • OMG beautiful caves. Inside a very large on the way up to the roof, approximately 600 meters. Tired of the almost-dead 😂 up today, but I was so much. The entrance to the cave is very narrow, but people go down. There are staff who will attend to the cave to, by all means take the torch to.

  • Erawan National Park, to rise to the top if the fee 100 Baht matong and walk up the Hill for about 600 meters, officials use Hurricane spotting within the cave.
