First of all there’s a huge mix-up on these pages between: Tham Pla (The Fish Cave), which is about 20 minutes drive north of MHS on the road to Pai, and, Tham Lot cave near Soppong, Pang Mapha district, Mae Hong Son Province which is about 40 minutes south of Pai on the road to MHS. There’s even photos of... More

I visited the monkey temple and fish cave last week. The beautiful natural setting of the cliff face, and stream is completely spoiled by the numerous caged animals kept on the site. The animals are kept in appalling conditions with very little regard given their basic needs of food and water and shelter, and absolutely no attempt to provide enrichment... More

Stop at the first booth closest to the road. This lady has the best chicken in Northern Thailand. We come up to Fish Cave on our way to Mac Cham Pae and stop here every time!

550B for entrance, guide and a bamboo boat to transport you around the cave. Despite comments on there I thought the cave was great - so big and loads of interestingly shaped stalagmites and stalactites. Thousands I fish you can feed too, 10/20B fish food as you enter, there are seriously thousands of fish in the water in the dark... More

Quite boring! That's a lot fish though.. Perhaps a good place for kids. It’s about 30 minutes drive from the Mae Hong Son town, and needs pay 100 Baht for entry.

Entry was only 100 Baht each and well worth it. The place is beautifully landscaped with plenty of fish to see. From what we saw, it is impossible to go into the caves as the entrance is too small! Local food stalls located by the entrance, offer genuine Thai food at reasonable prices. 500 metres up the road is also... More

Well for me, this place isn't my favorite. It is just a cave that has a lot of fishes. You should skip this place and maybe drive a little further to other amazing places in Mae Hong Son! But if you are in to fishes, then It's cool!

It is a nice place to chill out during a long curve drive to Mar Hong Son with my family in a 4-wheel-drive truck. It is near the roadside with small streams and lots of big and small fish swimming around the clear water. Children are happy to go there as you can buy fruit , fish food and vegetables... More

This is a beautiful and well maintained grounds that has a clear watered stream/river running through it. There are some small and large fish that one can spot by the hundreds in this incredibly transparent water. They sell various vegetables and fruits along with traditional fish food to feed the fish who in turn devour this stuff. You will walk... More
