Koh Lanta has chains of caves disbursed all over the island, the one closer and en route to the above visited was Tham Mai Kaew. The route to these caves was very remarkable, as we had to plod through a wooded area, reminiscent of the wildlife sanctuaries in India. It further led deep into rubber plantations, the entrance to the cave added to the excitement, it was a small rocky window entrance.
Many guides has the Kaew visit as part of the itinerary while you are led through cavernous pools, stalactites and stalagmites some in shape of massive chandeliers that hang precariously. Be warned if you are allergic to Bats and the stale smell emanating from the caves, just take a detour, there are plenty of Bats big and small in there.
