Take a hike through the jungle for about 30mins and then into the cave for an hour. We were limited on time but the tour guide was nice enough to speed up the cave trekking. Saw bats and a scary big spider. Worth it.

First a you'll be trekking through the jungle to the cave entrance. Then 30min cave walking and climbing ladders in the dark. Cave is superb and definitely worth a visit. We saw many bats and big spiders. So take your time to explore even if...More

Not a glitzy attraction - it’s about a 2 km off the road to Old Town. Cost was 300 baht and included headlamp and guide (although about all the guide did was take you into the cave - he had no English). Wear runners -...More

about one hour cave walking was one of the coolest experiences in Thailand. Not for those with claustrofobia

I really enjoyed the 1.5-2hours trip to the caves. You walk and climb up a few ladders and steps through the jungle for about 30mins, then walk through the caves with headlamps (provided by the guide) and see beautiful structures, maybe a few big spiders,...More

In one month of travelling in Thailand we've never seen such a beautiful cave and nature. The cost is 300 bath for person and it's worthy. More than 20 rooms inside the cave. The guide was helpful and necessary. The restaurant close to the cave...More
