With a 6 year old i didn't want danger and tight gaps, this was easy but gave a sense of danger for the child to get excited. Tour and lantern cost more than entrance witch is a shame as 80 baht in then 100 for lantern and 100 for gift. Many signs saying don't go alone and although you could... More

Its an interesting place to visit. The caves are huge and you have guides to bring you along for a small fee. Can spend an hour or 2 there and there are some lovely boutique resorts nearby where you can stay as well.

This cave is very interesting. It is located about 3 kilometers from Chiang Dao and smooth paved road all the way to the Cave. Small shops there with lots of local products. A small stream cuts thru the site and has many fish to see in the crystal clear water. Fun site to visit.

The caves are well maintained. There are some treacherous paths. Guide is a must to have if you want to explore the cave. Definitely recommend to visit these caves if in Chiang Dao

I came here for many times. Everytime I visit, I always get a good impression not only by the natural but also from local people who works as a local guide in this cave.

The cave is very interesting to explore. You'll have a guide with a lantern who will bring you into some strange caverns. We travelled as a family and even the 3 year old could walk the trails. Everyone loved it. Some say dragons used to live below. Some Budha shrines in the caves.Wear comfortable shoes.

The best in Chiang Dao, I would go to Chiang Dao from Chiang Mai even only for seeing this. The caves are quite large, with many shapes inside formed by many different materials. Also there are some buddhist statues inside. There are two ways - one about 300m long, enlightened with small colourful lights, where you don't need a guide... More

I was staying close by and walked to the cave on a whim and was happy I did. I paid the fee to go in (I think it was 100 baht), but did not hire a guide. You can go a fair distance in this large well lit cave without a guide and it's worth seeing. It is quite extensive... More

We hired a guide with a lamp and saw both routes through the caves. One route involved a bit of crawling and scrambling and would possibly be challenging to anyone with mobility issues. You need to wear clothing to cover shoulders and knees as there are temples within the cave. We saw a turtle in the large pond area at... More
