Fascinating cave and temple complex to explore with lots of Buddhas in cool temperatures. It's an easy bike ride from Kanchanaburi with a WW2 graveyard en-route and only 1 hill at the end.

If you are claustrophobic do not go but if not, this is something to see. The cave formations are something to see.

This may not be on the usual tourist route but was a pleasant escape from the crowds. The trip may not be suitable to those who suffer from claustrophobia, difficulty climbing or would have difficulty passing through some narrow gaps. It is also somewhat humid inside the cave. From the end of the road there is a very good view... More

First of all we were the only visitors in that cave, which maybe contributed to feeling uncomfortable during the visit. You get in on one side and come out at another side of the cave. The way through the cave is pretty narrow and the ceiling very low. Nothing for people with claustrophobia. It was very smelly and I felt... More

This cave and temple is easy to miss. We visited on a boat trip as one of the stops. Only 30B it is very good value. The cave is much bigger than we thought and goes down and down. Not for the claustrophobic as some passages are low and narrow but if you can persevere it is fantastic. One tip.... More

You could easily miss this place, it is off the beaten track and not well sign posted. As with many caves in Thailand, they are used as temples. It isn't touristy at all and only costs 30 baht. Part of the cave was used as a hospital during the war. Worth a visit on the way to other places rather... More

This cave is a must visit if you stay for a couple of days in Kanchanaburi. The cave is a lot bigger than you first assume. It took me and my boyfriend 30min to walk through the whole cave. Get there early then you can have the whole cave to yourself. It is definitely an adventurous feeling to explore the... More
