The Most Exotic Caves In Thailand

Want to explore the most fascinating caves in the world? 

Being a part of Thailand, you have the beauty of nature at your disposal. The gorgeous sand beaches, delicious cuisine, and what strikes us the most is the stunning caves! Here are the most mesmerising caves that one must visit in Thailand.

Tham Lot, Pag Mapha-

A 40 minutes drive from Pai in Sappong, Tham Lot Cave can be explored with local guides’ help. You can approach the cave through a raft, walk through the cave and then leave on another raft. Another way is to enter through a bamboo raft, walk through the cave, and exit through the forest while walking. You will require a frail level of fitness to walk all the way and climb up the cave’s rugged terrain.

Tham Chiang Dao, Chiang Dao-

Limestone sculptures never fail to delight us, incredibly when sculpted by nature! Over a 100 cave complex spread over an area of 10 kilometres by the mountain ranges. Many of them have shrines and Buddha images in them. You need to pay a small fee to enter the caves, and it is advised to take a local guide with you through the caves.

Phraya Nakhon Cave, Khao Sam Yot National Park-

A 45 minutes drive from Hua resides the Phraya Nakhon Cave in Khao Sam Rot Yot National Park. It is one of the most beautiful caves in Thailand, with white beaches, rugged mountains and lush forests. Each shelter has tiny openings at the top, allowing sunlight beams to peep in. the biggest chamber house of Kuha Karuhas pavilion is a magical sight to behold.

Phi Hua To Cave, Krabi-

Also known as the big-headed ghost cave, it is the most famous cave close to Than Bok Khorani National Park. Surrounded by mangrove forest and adorned by prehistoric paintings, it is believed to be the burial site for over 3000 years ago, having found over a thousand skulls here. It also has a vast tiger claw mark embedded on a stone.

Viking Cave, Koh Phi Phi Ley-

The stunning limestone cave has beautiful drawings of ancient Viking ships on walls. A popular site to harvest a certain kind of bird that grows in the cave. The cave is not allowed to be explored anymore, but boats are allowed to come close enough to the cave walls.
