We visited this cave/temple complex and were very disappointed. The caves were unexceptional apart from some statues. The main pathway was well lit. The part where we had to pay for a guide with a lamp was abandoned because the lamp prevented us seeing beyond as it was lighting a small area with a too bright light. There was little air and it was very hot. The smell of paraffin was nauseating. We abandoned this part. The best part of the complex was the old temples and rocky setting. The staff were somewhat surly. An unusual experience in Thailand.

ဂူများသည် son posiblemente las más famosas ပေမယ့် the resto de los grounds of the large ဘုရားကျောင်း are just as လှပတယ်။ ဂူ များ အာလုံးကြည့်ချင်ဆိုရင် ၂နာရီလောက် လိုပါလိမ့်မယ်။ If you know you’ll be satisfecho con las lit areas of the cuevas, ၄၅ မိနစ်လောက် should be suficiente.

Excellent place to visit. We were lucky in that, it was not very busy (strange for a thursday late morning, late november), however for us it was a bonus. The caves here are the main attraction. They are very well presented and interesting inside. The lit path is about 200m. (We have been to many caves, so did not feel the need to pay the extra 200 baht for a guide to the deeper darker sections. However if you have not visited many caves before it may well get worth it). There are lots of stalls outside so I guess during peak periods, festivals etc if must get quite hectic. As always the earlier you go the better Certainly worth a visit.

A normal temple outside the cave. Just at the entrance to the caves, I enjoyed watching the fish. There's various catfish species including maybe the mekong catfish or patin. I saw one or two sebarau and there's a good number of Thai mahseer Neolissochilus stracheyi. You can buy food to feed the fish.

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