From the base of the hill we walked to the entrance. There is no need to take a taxi/bus to the top of the hill. The long-tailed macaques are everywhere, but they were not agressive. The cave temple itself was much bigger than I had expected. The fresh air inside the cave is very nice..... We spend about 1 hour... More

Location Nearby Khao Wang Historical place. 20 min drive from Cha-am town Environment Take a tuk tuk before going in the cave (15baht per person). 5 mins walk down the stairs to reach the cave. Few Buddha sculpture inside the cave with sleeping Buddha, big Buddha statues and many small Buddha statues. Very peaceful place. What caught my eyes was... More

Tham Khao Luang Cave is quite an accessible cave as compared to some i have come across that requires you to do some trekking and climbing a few flights of thousand steps - i am sure you know what i am talking about. After parking, visitors are required to buy a return ticket (i think it was 15baht or 30baht)... More

A ride up the hill to the entrance and back costs 15 thb (which is a fair price), but if you do not want to pay, you can walk – it is about 200 m at the most. The hill is infected with monkeys which sometimes behaved very agressively – we even had to give up the idea of visiting... More

We've been lucky enough to see a lot of Buddhist shrines in the last 12 months (both in Thailand and Sri Lanka) but his has to rank as one of the most memorable. The shrines are located in a series of increasingly smaller caves which are accessed via some steep steps. If you visit on a sunny day (early afternoon... More

Although we had a car, we had to park it at the start of the incline and take the short Jeep journey to the cave entrance (15B return). There are steep steps down into the cave (with a handrail in places) and the floors can be slippy - so care must be taken. However, it is worth the effort, especially... More

Definitely stop by if you are in the area - we loved it! It's quite spacious and lit up inside so you will get some beautiful pictures out of it. I would advice people who get claustrophobic or get short of breath easily.

Wonderful cave. Buddhist nun very welcoming. Very beautiful place to visit if in area. Monkeys not at all a problem unless you have stacks of food or drink with you! We went with a young family (6/9 years old) great tour guide - Nan

Interesting cave. Next to the main cave is a path that leads to to a very scenic clearing in the forest.
