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

Great excursion off the beaches. Tours are 300 Baht per person. It's a 20 minute trek through the forest to cave entrance, approx 1 hour inside and another 20 minutes back. Wear older clothes & definitely hiking shoes (No flip flops). Cave is no joke....More

You hike 20-30 minutes through the jungle along a waterfall and have about an hour in the cave before hiking back. You need to be able to climb and crawl in some places. Two kids around 10 were in our group and they did fine...More

The visit to these caves was incredible. It is like walking in church rooms inside the cave. At times the ceiling is 30 m high. I walked with a constant woooow on my lips. Dont miss this. It is incredible.
