All reviews bamboo raft tham lod fish the river stalactites and stalagmites rock formations bring your own scooter ride little bit worth the trip points of interest short walk an hour and a half paid baht wet season the main road take your time
4 stars because I have experienced many caves. Went as part of the all day multi-stop tour organized by almost everyone in Pai. Trip there was a bit windy but we had good driver and lucky enough to ride in cab. I recommend you bring...More
The Lod Cave is a large cave worth seeing if you are travelling north of Pai. We were staying in the Soppong area so it was easy to get to. However, it is very touristy and you must get a guide to go in.
First i wanted to make this point- as i looked for a comment about it before i went and didn't find one-
Don't drive there is you aren't a experience motorbike driver! My bf has a lot of experience driving scooters, and even for him...More
We paid BHT 500 for the two of us for a private longboat. The price included a tour of the Phi Hua To Cave. Due to the northern winter, the Phi Hua To Cave was very crowded. Everybody pushed everybody.
The round trip lasted about...More
We had the opportunity to go down to the Lod Cave travelling up to Mae Hong Song. It is definitly worth the trip! We had actually a guide that gave a lot of information about the cave and what could have been seen there. It...More
Enjoyed the visit.
Wear proper shoes with a good grip as most surfaces may be slippery. You will be walking mostly in the dark, accompanied by a guide with a kerosene lamp.
A certain level of fitness will be required, and those with heart conditions...More
Some of the other reviews here describe the visit logistics well. We visited Cave 1 & 2 & skipped 3 because we heard the air there is lower oxygen and there are bats pooping everywhere. And I’m already having breathing issues. Everyone goes in with...More
I really enjoyed this trip. It was a trek out of Pai and I agree that you have to get there early. Wear sensible shoes and get hydrated BEFORE going into the caves as food and drink are not permitted and it does get very...More
Just completed a visit to Lod Cave. We only did the walk into the first chamber and did not worry about the next 2 as we are a bit "caved Out" after other attractions.
Enjoyed the short walk and particularly was impressed by the giant...More
You do not have to book a guide but when you arrive at the cave you have to pay for a guide to take you through the cave. The guide is a local who will probably have little if any English. Go with a couple of people. Cheaper.
I found the village page from one of my friends. Search on FB with keyword "thamlodvillage". You'll see the black and white cave logo. It's the page created by villagers under government fund.
If you have your own transport then you can easily drive there and hire a guide for 150 Baht for up to 3 people (not per person). Depending on exactly how old your child is you may need 2 guides or they may allow just one... More
If you have your own transport then you can easily drive there and hire a guide for 150 Baht for up to 3 people (not per person). Depending on exactly how old your child is you may need 2 guides or they may allow just one. Bamboo rafts are extra and you can either pay to go one way and walk back or have a return journey. I think it's about 300 Baht per person for a return.
To get to the cave entrance from the car park you'll need to walk through the gardens and a bit of forest on good paths for about half a mile at most. It's about a 20 minute walk from the exit of the cave back to the car park if you took a bamboo raft one way.
You can organise a tour from Pai for about 400 baht per person, there is public transport you can use but it involves motorbike taxis to get to the cave so it's a good adventure but won't really save you a lot of money.
There is a shop and restaurant on site to pick up refreshments or Cave Lodge is nearby and they do really good Farang (Foreigner) or Thai food.
Hope this helps.
