Budgetcatcher Real Life – Tham Lot Cave
Planning your vacation and starting to think about just going back to that place you went last year?
C’mon, you know you can do better!
BudgetCatcher Real Life presents amazing things to do in throughout Thailand.
Today we would recommend you to explore Tham Lot Cave, one of the most amazing cave in Northern Thailand.
Tham Lot Cave is a natural limestone cave system with a length of 1.666 meters, its main feature is the freshwater stream which runs through the middle of the cave for about 300 meters. Inside it’s walls are covered with massive formations and columns over 20 meters high. The cave is also home to large numbers of bats and swifts, and the river is filled with hundreds of airborne fish.
The highlight though was getting on small bamboo raft inside the Tham Lot cave and gliding slowly over the water through the cave with only the light from the lamp guiding the way, and with the sound of hundreds of bats above. Eventually you slowly emerge through a stunning cave opening out into the jungle.
