This tour goes through Ban Doong Minority Area where the villages have no roads to them and there is no electricity. It is like traveling back in time and there are no tourists up there so the locals do not try to sell you stuff. They are just looking at you wondering where you came from and why!
You then approach the cave along a cool river, often wading through the stream. The cave comes in to sight as a small entrance, but what is behind it will blow you away. Spend the afternoon relaxing in the cave and taking in the sights. After a good breakfast there is more time for exploring before you head back to the pick-up point via a slightly different route inside the cave to see more of this incredible cave.
