I asked locals in the area which direction the bats would fly in hopes of getting the best viewing spot. I waited about 20 minutes and the bats started flying out just before 6 pm as the sun was setting! They fly towards the main road! I have never seen anything like it and it was such a special moment. The whole event takes about 30 minutes!

Millions of bats started to head out from the cave at 520pm. Was here at 445pm. Went to the night market opposite the temple to have some nice street foods. Best spot to take photo and video of the flight was at the main road, not within the temple. The flight last more than 30min.

Khao Chong Pran Temple, Photharam District, Ratchaburi Province is a place where people can come to worship. Pay homage to the Buddha and in the evening you can watch thousands of bats fly out of the cave. If you come on Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday, there will be a food shop for us to walk around as well.

This place is Wat Khao Chong Pran, there will be a cave nearby, when it's almost dark, there will be a flock of bats flying out of the cave every day. It's a rare natural sight and will return at dawn. There will also be a giveaway. Get a reclining Buddha image and there is still a place to view the scenery on the mountain to watch the sunset and also just above the mouth of the bat cave, which can come up and look at this corner. There will be a car to take up and walk. If you want to walk, you have to walk up to 499 step

We arrived at Wat Khao Chong Pran well before 5:30 p.m. and the bats didn't emerge until past 6:15 p.m. but the wait to see the millions of bats streaming from the cave was well worth it! Super impressive! The cave entrance is located about 4/5 of the way up the side of the mountain slightly to the right of the temple as you face the mountainside. Not sure if the bats always fly the same direction from the cave, but the day we were there, they flew to the right (east). Before the bats even emerge, a number of raptors appear on cue, circling and waiting in nearby trees for the bats to emerge. A few of the unlucky first bats to emerge get picked off as dinner for the birds, but there are literally millions to come out to devour the region's mosquitoes! The steady stream of bats emerging continues for at least 45 minutes. The best place for viewing the evening we were there was from the right side of the open grassy area, so you have a view of the bats against the sky. If I go back again, I may try climbing up to the cave entrance to get a close view of the raptors and the bats emerging.

Me and my good friend visited Thailand, we traveled from Bangkok to this place as we thought it would be a memorable and interesting experience, being fans of nature, and too right it was! What an extraordinary sight to witness an endless swarm of bat's streaming out of this mountainous hill. I read one review which doubted that there were millions of bats and suggested it was more like a hundred thousand but i reckon there was much more than a million. Definitely would recommend this rare experience. One of the most unique things in life i have witnessed!

We stayed in Pattaya, so waking up at 4:00 am and then driving 350 km was not an easy quest.
I will for sure not do it just for cave, and take alpaca park, orchid garden etc.
And I will not go there with children below 8 yo.
But apart from said, that’s impressive! That is! You find yourself in a real horror movie, and it’s hard to believe it’s happening for real! It starts from unpredictable monkeys at the entrance and right when the sun goes downs suddenly from the middle of the mountain a thousands bats (or they say millions) start to fly out in the endless herd, and goes, and goes! It really takes more then an hour for them to come out!
And then go to cave... it’s not beautiful Indiana Johns cockroaches, it’s for real! They are big and everywhere down at your legs, and they crunch so you can feel walking on hundreds of them! And the bats are flying all around at the ceiling of the cave , going down so you can feel it next to your faces
It’s for real, and the feeling you can not mix
Go for it: getting into a real movie pays back with lots of impressions!

If your in the area it’s worth going to, I’m living in ratchaburi and put it off for months and finally went last night and was absolutely blown away!!!! It started around 530pm or so, I stayed over 20 mins and they were still going strong, only left cause I didn’t want to ride my bike back in the dark.. there’s a grass area to wait for them and can see them come out of the hill, but then I went down the other end past the market to get a way better view of them and pics
