We mostly passed by this wat since we were headed to the caves. Looked interesting enough but not enough to outshine the caves.

We only followed the walk ways lit by electric lighting, but nevertheless the caves are absolutely stunning: vast open areas with huge stalactites and other-worldly rock formations. Many statues of Buddha along the way. The grounds around the cave are also very picturesque. Worth a...More

Is a mysterious place to visit and walk into the cave. I think you don’t need to walk to another dark way with the lamp lady. Juz walk urself to another way cos more safety and everything looks similar only dark and light cave. Suggest...More

The place is nice and clean but it's nothing special compare to other average caves. You can go inside and see interesting parts of the cave. Defiantly won't go to Chiang Dao only for the caves but as part of longer trip.

Spectacular place - temple within the cave. In addition you Can hire a guide (200bahts) and rent a gas lamp (additional 200bahts) to see the cave. If you are not physically capable or you have claustrophobia , you may have problems with going through 3...More

Sorry I can't advise on the taxi fare or hired driver fare because I drive my own car to Wat Tham Chiang Dao temple from Chiang Mai City. It takes about 1.5 hours drive there. This temple should be open all year round.
