10 hour adventure 8 hours being underground in Thailands premier cave. This is for "REAL" adventurers that are in rather good shape. This adventure does have some technical sections thus we do not allow children to do the entire cave. We do have an option for those with older children (half cave). You will see and walk through hundreds of stalactites and stalagmites, see thousands of formations, under ground waterfalls, underground lake, and if the water is clear enough even albino fish.
For those fit enough we have a trek of a lifetime for you. Pai Adventures is the only outfitter in Pai offering a once in a lifetime trek through an amazing cave system. Our cave follows a stream that cuts it’s way under the mountain in the Soppong jungle. It is 12 kilometers of one jaw-dropping sight after another.
DETAILS- Your guide will lead the way down the scenic mountain for 1 hour to the entrance of the cave. You will see amazing rocky outcrops covered in jungle with wild birds overhead during your decent. At the cave entrance you will do a gear check and prepare yourself for 8 hours underground. There you will enter the stream and begin your caving adventure. Your guide will lead the way through the cave showing you the safest path to take. You will get time to gaze at the wonders during your trip.
You will also get breaks while waiting for the guide to fix ropes for your safety. There are some perilous sections in the cave that require teamwork. Your guide will ask for assistance in these areas. The cave is mostly wide open and very tall. There is no crawling or extremely cramped areas. Roughly halfway through your adventure the guide will serve you lunch inside the cave. You will then trek the rest of the cave until you see the sunlight and crawl out. He will then lead you on an hour trek up the mountain to be picked up and return to Pai.
THIS ADVENTURE IS OPEN FROM JANUARY TO MAY (rain dependant).
