Fodor's Review

Studded with stalactites, this cave overflows with images of the Buddha, among them a 10-meter-long reclining one. Most were put in place by kings Rama IV and Rama V. For a donation of B20 or so to pay for the electricity, a nun will light up the rear of the cave for you. A two-minute walk from the parking lot—including some steep stairs—gains you access to the cave. Watch out for the monkeys along the way. Wat Tham Klaep, a large monastery at the bottom of the hill below the cave, is open to the public. The cave is best appreciated on a clear morning, between 9 and 10, when the sun shines in and reflects off the brass iconography.
