Beautiful lights

The cave is long and large areas of the floor are flooded during the rainy season. There is an elevated path winding through the cave and colored lights pointed at walks and ceiling. The light reflects beautifully in the water.
In the dry season, the cave floor is dry. A local police officer I met at the parking lot told me that roughly two months per year, access is prohibited due to too much water, so maybe it is a good idea to check in advance before visiting late in the rainy season.
However, I think one can access the rear of the cave all year round as one can also enter the cave by walking around to the left and then descend down a staircase.

Very nice

Very beautiful cave and worth the 40km drive from Phrae city.
There is a climb up to the cave entrance which may be difficult for the elderly.
Once inside the temperature drops but it is humid.

Good stop if you're on the road between Nan and Phrae

The cave is worth a visit if you're driving between Phrae and Nan, but don't think it's worth making a special trip. Tricky to find - there are a few signs once you reach the village of Rong Kwang, but it's easy to miss the turn off the highway. I missed the turn, then made the next left turn, and somehow ended up at the cave. See my photos below for a pic of the welcome sign, complete with GPS coordinates. Once you do arrive, there are a few snack sellers at the parking area. Climb some steep stairs through the forest to the cave entrance. Interesting rock formations. The sound similar to crickets at dusk is actually screeching bats, but they keep their distance. You can cover the stairs and the cave in a leisurely hour.

Day Trip - Tham Pha Nang Khoi Cave
Nov 2014 • Friends
This was an amazing day trip we took in mid November, 2014. From the city of Phrae the drive with 2 people on motorbike was around 30-45min. (37km) The cave is utterly breathtaking and I would tell everyone to visit one day! The cave's walls are backlight with red, blue, green lights and creates a psychedelic experience as you walk the cave. Around 20 min from one end to the other. There is currently a Monk living in the cave, who will have you pick a stick from a jar with a number on it, which he then hands you a paper with a fortune/future written in English, Thai and Chinese.

Your first time finding may be tricky, as of 26-11-2014 there is construction on the road you turn off, making the entrance to the cave's main road easy to miss. Be sure to remember "Bi Tham Khoi" or "Bi Pha Nong Tham" (I Go... to cave Khoi or I go to pha nong cave) to ask a local on the road if you get lost. Very helpful! Tham = Cave

From Phrae:
Take the 101 North (going towards NAN)
Stay on this highway for around 20-30km
Once you come into a small town with shops/stores, at the end on the left will be a university....the entrance to the cave road is after on the left (.50km ?)

*If you pass and keep going, the road turns into many turns and curves... you have gone too far, turn around.
