It's an ok stop over, but you will get to see myriads more fish (and feed them) in the real gem of the area Tham Lod. Make sure to book the bamboo raft trip there...totally worth... read more

I have visited many national parks in Thailand and was expecting a little more than one small hole in a rock with fish at the bottom for my 100 baht. Lucky I had my own transport. Really guys don't waste your money. Can't really add anything else to the review as that was all it was.

On our way to Mae Hong Son our guide gave us many information about all wat we have seen, f.e. the fish cave. Special is that these fishes are vegetarian You have the possibility to nuy some vegetables and feed them. There are many fishes, because Boeddha has forbidden to catch them.

Came here in 2015 and now 2016 with more friends. A small market at the front carpark is your first welcome. Follow the path and cross the bridge then 200 metres away you come across large pools filled with these large blue fish. Food for the fish is sold here, where you walk up to the cave....about a metre wide... More

After having a great time at Lod Cave for the same 100b I was disappointed in this place in terms of vfm. It is OK but i decided not to even take a photo.

We visited this park/cave while taking a day off of doing the Mae Hong Son loop. It's a nice park to chill for a while, have a little stroll and be amazed at the amount of fish in the cave/pond. It's easily reached from Mae Hong Son (by car/motorbike), and I think it's a nice activity to take smaller children.

The walk to the pond is nice. The entrance fee is okay, if I remember correctly 200 Baht pp. But in the end this is nothing more than a fish pond with flowing water with some fish we had seen before.

The best thing about Pla Cave is not so much the fish, but the beautiful gardens. It is nice and peaceful and a really nice walk to the cave.

A superb exhibit of natural geology and a worthy day visit as the caves are teaming with both human and animal activity. An eclectic mix of different species of bat and bird battle for a collision-free passage in to and out of the cave, making for a unique wildlife spectacle. A tour guide armed with an old-school oil lantern gently... More
