  • The caves are incredible, and absolutely huge!! Definitely worth a visit, but just a warning that there are a lot of rickety narrow stairs to climb.  more »
  • We are on the scooter from Pai to this cave. It was long, but all worth it. The road is tortuous and goes up and down, but also very quiet. We are still been along a beautiful view point on top of a mountain and also stopped a number of times. Eventually an hour in the cave. 900 baht paid for 5 persons with 2 guides. Very funny females that designated all what's on animals you won't see it but it seemed, sometimes you shoot every time in the lag. Third cave with the bamboo boats done which is also a super experience was. Top day!

  • So cool!! Worth the trip. The hike through the cave isn’t too hard, there are steep stairs so be careful. Wear comfy shoes and bring your excitement for an awesome site. I would suggest going early as it starts to get crowded midday and then feels a little like Disney Land.
  • Such an awesome experience. I like that it feels untouched and the tour was engrossing the whole way through. The bamboo raft is definitely worth doing and the fish in the river are huge! You can buy bags of food at the entrance counter to feed them when you purchase your ticket. 100% worth seeing.
  • The name means “ the cave with the river flowing through” and it’s huge! But with only the paraffin lamps the visibility is limited, however it adds to the feeling of exploring these amazing caves. You visit the huge Giant Pillar chamber and the Doll Cave. The geological formations are spectacular. Then it’s a ride down the river on a bamboo raft, under thousands of bats squeaking above you, to the “Pi Man” or Coffin cave. Here are remains of the coffins, from hollowed out teakwood trees. An exciting walk but slippery so wear sturdy shoes. Take your own flashlight so you can see more. Also our mandatory guide could not speak English and seemed to hurry us through. Tickets for up to 3 people are 450 Bath - worth the visit!
  • The caves are much larders than you would expect. I was completely taken aback by the scale of the complex. You will need adding 1.5 hours to do the whole thing. You have to get a guide and the max in a group is three. If you take a scooter up from Pai, be aware it takes sold two hours drive each way. One thing that concerned me was how damaging the tours are to the caves but it's just so big that I guess they see it as necessary to damage a fraction to open up the interior to tours. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Stunning caves with the paraffin lantern bearers adding to the magical ambiance. Floating on a bamboo rafts through the dark main cave while feeding giant carp was an unparalleled cave experience.
