What you can expect

“This place is definitely a must visit. The beauty of the cave is just indescribable.”Kay, United States

Although the town of Chiang Dao is famous for its Elephant Training Center, several adventurers have come to these parts for another reason altogether: cave trekking. The Chiang Dao Cave (Wat Tham Chiang Dao) is without a doubt one of the area’s more fascinating sites. Five limestone caverns invite one to uncover its beautiful stalactites, stalagmites, Buddha statues, and votive offerings from faithful pilgrims.

The cave was so amazing! Much larger than I imagined. But the transit time was a bit long.
