As I said in my previous post, the Chiang Dao Caves are definitely worth a visit. The cave complex is huge! Its part of a temple complex so there are lots of Buddha images in the caves, especially at the start of the cave. It’s a really beautiful place.
Once you get a few meters into the cave there are two options – you can either go for a wander down the lit walkway which can be done without a guide. Or, you can hire a lantern and a guide and go exploring in the unlit caves.
We hired a guide to explore the unlit caves. WOW – it was so cool. I think our tour must have been about 25-30mins, we saw so many different caves and formations… many of which looked like animals. A photographer followed us around and took lots of group photos – I thought this was a bit odd given the lighting was so poor.
Here are some photos (from my camera) from the caves.
