This is one of my favorite places. Even here is not the big place but it is quite adventure place. The staff will queue up for tourists to get inside 30-40 pax per round to prevent getting lost inside. Tourists can follow the LED light to exit. This cave is not so suit to big size people because it is quite narrow where you cannot stand up straight to walk. You have to bow your body all the time and slide to pass some part. There is no tour guide charge but you can give them tip as per your consideration.

I had no idea what was involved here, I thought I was just entering a fairly large cave with some passageways from the entry to the exit. The first stage was down a number of steps which took us a few metres underground and was nothing spectacular, as we made our way through it started to get tighter and lower and we were walking in ankle high water.
Then next I stopped in my tracks as I had to squeeze through a very tight space and also keep low, my thoughts were I could not do it and I would have to backtrack. I was driven on my a number of Thai people behind me willing me on, I thought I was actually stuck for a moment as I had to inch forward slowly just squeezing through. What a relief.
The worst was ahead when I had to get down flat on the ground and crawl through a low gap opening which this time I was sure to be stuck, how I managed I don't know. Now it was plain sailing just a little stroll and a wooden ladder a rope to pull up on and another metal ladder and out.
I had a crowd of people who clapped as I emerged, what an experience that was.
This is not recommended I guess if you are over 178cms and 100 kgs. Although you might like to try, it's free, advice is if you do don't carry your wallet or keys and expect to get a bit wet and dirty.

Explore sandstone (in my limited knowledge) cave that is said to be payanak (naga)'s passageway between their palace beneath Mekong River and the human realm.

The exploration is guided by locals who speaks Thai or the local dialect Isaan, narrating the history and stories of the cave and its chambers.

Route within the cave is tight and wet with underground water, however it is led by LED light on the ceiling. Relatively safe for amateurs.

Bring only a camera with strap or a phone if you must to take pictures; leave backpacks and other things behind as space is cramp and unnecessary belongings will get in your way.

Not recommended for people who are claustrophobic and has hypertension. Otherwise it is really a good experience crawling around. Adventurous !

Wat compound above is kept really clean and peaceful to walk around. Parking lots available.
