Your guide will bring you to see either Tam Nam Lu Cave. There, you will get wet as the water can reach up to chest level, as you make your way into this cave. Or to the Diamond Coral Caves, these caves are filled with stalactites and stalagmites, truly an amazing sight. Please be careful in the cave and do not touch or break these formations, as they take centuries to form.

After your trek, you have time to relax, before enjoying your Thai set dinner in the peaceful surroundings of the lake. After dinner, your guide will take you on an exciting night safari, walking through the dense forest, on the look-out for the animals, which come out to hunt in the cool of the evening. After that, you will return to your floating bungalow and enjoy a night of peaceful sleep, with only the noise of the lake and the wildlife, to send you to sleep.

Awake to the beautiful surroundings of the lake and take the long tail boat on an early morning boat safari to see, wild macaque monkeys, gibbons, and, if you are lucky, dusky languors. The morning is the best time to see wildlife and birds, before the heat of the day. Return to the raft house and enjoy your freshly prepared breakfast.

After breakfast, you can enjoy another trek in the dense forests, to a spectacular viewpoint, remember to take your camera. You can enjoy lunch back at the raft house before preparing your bags for the journey back to the resort or your onward destination.

Next, you’ll strap on your headlamps and prepare to get wet, as the hike extends through the “water cave” (dry season only) and soon becomes a dark wonderland. This is an excellent time to view the many nocturnal species that inhabit this cave (from a safe distance of course) and cool yourself in the river as you explore. Оne hour trek to the Nam Talu Cave can see palm-sized butterflies swarming along small streams and other small animals and insects.

Follow a small stream coming out of the cave and soon the only light will that from your headlamps. You can see bats, spiders, and crabs in the dark.
