“600 meters up a mountain but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Quite a challenge to get there, 600 meters long stairs up a mountain (a real challenge!!) but worth the walk. First you only see a shallow cave but a guide leads you into the cave through a very narrow and dark opening (can only go with a guide of the park). An then a big surprise, a gorgeous cave that's more then 150 deep. The tours though the cave takes for about 45 min. He will show all the interesting details of the cave, show you the bats :) and he speaks a bit of English. Tip: bring some repellant for the mosquito's on your way up (jungly so there are a few), the cave is nice and cool, no mosquito's in there, nice to cool down! Fun to visit, worth the climb!

ps. park/cave closes 16.00 pm. Only 20 min from Erawan.

“Quiet and peacefull place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

This cave is located in the Erawan national park (entrance to the waterfall gives free access here). The route we took there was via unpaved road and via a temple.
You are guided through to (600m walk up through bamboo forest) and through the cave by a Thai guide.
The main hall inside is huge and further there are some very nice formations/
I was quite impressed with this cave.
