Nice natural cave

Viking Cave is one of the tourist attractions in Koh Phi Phi Le island and we had visited the same during our sightseeing tour by speed boat. This cave is located on the way to Pileh Lagoon. We saw this cave from our boat and took pictures while our guide explained us why this place is called Viking Cave.

As much as birds nest is a delicacy in some of these far eastern countries, so this is considered a must see. You just ride around the island and the guide will give a complete history and how the whole process of retrieving these valuable nests etc works.

Not Good for Animal lover

locally called Tham Phaya Nak, which is located on Phi Phi Leh, for a good glimpse of the caves. The cave is a huge collection of swifts’ nests, the main component of bird’s nest soup – it is a Chinese specialty and ridiculously expensive. I wonder how humans exploit not only animals but their shelters too and also pay such an outrageous amount – at least 2500 $ for a single nest. As an Animal lover, we don't like the place at all.

Popped here for photos as apparently it’s now been closed to the public. It looks fascinating from the outside and you can get some excellent pics

Interesting place to view, can't visit
Feb 2020
Sunday 16th February and this was a photo opportunity on our speedboat trip to Phi Phi Island.

Sadly the cave is no longer open to tourists, so we could only view it from afar.

Our Guide informed us that the caves were formed from limestone. There are some paintings on the walls depicting various types of boats, including some resembling boats of a Scandinavian origin.

Also, birds nest here are harvested for a traditional Chinese soup, bird's nest soup.

The harvest of bird’s nests is undertaken using scaffolds, which are visible, they are constructed using bamboo. The structures are climbed in darkness to collect the nests.

Although we did not get to go inside the cave it was still an impressive sight.

Ancient caves, cannot visit only see from boat
Feb 2020
We visited the caves as a part of our phi phi island trip. The place is really beautiful, however one can only watch it from some distance. Tourists are not allowed to get down and go near the caves. We were told that there are some ancient paintings inside the caves.

Nice cave only for distant view

The Viking caves are private property and are not open to tourists. You can only see what is posted in the pictures form distance from your boat. The place you will not get off from your boat. Overall could have been more but you can just pass through it. It is just outside the phi-phi lagoon where usually people do the diving.

We went on a fast boat tour of the phi Phi Islands.

One of the stops is the viking cave but its now closed to tourists. You won't get near the place.
The other island which u will see from afar is the maya island that was used in the movie the beach its also shut to the tourists.
But the others are open once you get to the to the other islands u will understand why they are giving the area a rest from tourists

Lots and lots of boats we also went onto the beach on monkey Island.
Your told not to touch the monkeys or feed them but other boat tourists where picking up the baby monkeys for pics and feeding the older ones fruit.
It's still. A good day out for getting a sun tan
