An easy cave to enter and worth the 200 baht to have a guide which will ensure you get to enter the parts of the cave where a lantern is required. No need to specialist equipment, just good footwear.

The fee to enter the cave is only 40B per person & it's well worth it. The cave was very interesting & we only went as far as there were lights. We did not hire a "lantern lady" to take us further in to the...More

Great Caves for the area. Worth paying a guide to go into the non electric section. Was quite sad to see the tourist dollar pushed them in the direction of electricity in Caves. Personally feels it detracts from their beauty but each to their own....More

The entry fee is definitely worth the walk. The lit part of the cave was much bigger than I anticipated. There was also a well maintained walkway through the cave making the walk easy for families with young kids or elders. I went around 7-8am...More
