A visit to the Chiang Dao Caves

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.
