This cave is quite incredible - huge, apparently 8 miles deep. It's an adventure from start to finish with its dark narrow passageways, sudden open ceilings, stalagmites, stalactites, hidden shrines and bats. Think Indiana Jones discovering lost treasures around every corner. Footing can be tricking...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.

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...More

To get to Chiang Dao town from Chiang Mai, it's very easy and cheap to get the Thaton/Fang bus from Chang Phuak bus station - north of the Old City. The buses go from 6 am to around 7:30 pm daily, about every half an hour... More
