Not far from Mae Hong Son is the fish cave and during the low season an absolute relaxing place. At this time Only locals come to have a little walk 350m along the small river to the little fish cave. The fish cave itself is just a little hole from an underground river and for Thai people this place is... More

We were amazed to see how big and how many fish there were at these caves. It is a pleasant 5-10 min walk to the caves with fish feeding available all along the river. You can purchase fish food for a few dollars at the gates from the friendly locals. It was a very relaxing place with a lovely coffee... More

This isn't really what I expected it to be. I expected a huge cave with fish in it but got a couple of holes in a rock filled with fish. The water flows out of the mountain through a large underwater cave and spills into a pond and creek swarming with stunning large carp. Vendors sell bags of fruit, green... More

It's not a cave, it's just a small hole in the rocks, where you can see some fish. That's all. Well, also you can take a short walk around, but it will take 15-20 minutes max.

The area is nice, especially as there were very few visitors, when we visited, but it's not much of an attraction.

Nice quiet place to have a stroll and see some huge fish. There are plenty of places to eat in the car park area. There is a small entrance fee, more expensive for farangs but that is the same all over Thailand. There is a nice shaded walk to get to the fish where you can purchase food to feed... More

Fish Cave is just a small hole in the ground ( about 1 m2) with dozens of fishes in it. There is really nothing more to see - and they even ask for entrance fee to see it. A complete waste of time and money. There is a little, nicely maintained park around it to walk through, but nothing worth... More

Roughly 15 km from Mae Hong Son on the way to Pai, Thampla (literally cave fish in Thai) is a pleasant stop with good facilities and a gentle 500 m walk through a wooded area to a small cave with a river running out. The river is populated by hundreds of fresh water fish (some quite large) and you can... More

Nice short walk to fish cave where you can buy a bag of food to feed the many, big, hungry carp at the pool where the stream from the cave comes out. Cave itself is not accessible. Whole visit not more than half an hour. You must pay 100 baht to enter as it is a national park.
