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

We have choosen the longer (and hazardous) itinerary inside the cave, with a guide and a petrol lamp: not much to see: a quite small cave kept in bad condition.

If in the vicinity,make a point of visiting Chung Dao cave. Probably not worth a dedicated trip from Chiang Mai & is another example of tourists being charged double the Thai entrance fee. (However is well worth the 40 I paid). The cavity is large...More

Big cave with large, spacy halls and long pathes. There are a lot of stalactites and stalagnates (pillars), some of them looks like seal, lotus, lion etc. Also there is a temple inside, so you can find buddas in the cave. The most beautiful view...More
