Impressive temple in limestone caves, quite large, and with a variety of images. Very atmospheric. You have to go down a long flight of stairs ( no fun coming back up!) but it's worth it.

Today is a day me and my wife planned to be on the road as we have a trip to Hua Hin for a night. On the way we stop for some of the attentions and “Cave Temples” is one the stop. Interesting site to see if you pass by as this area is not something that you can do as per the people experience. If you like to visit this temple need to book a private car. After you reach the location you need to take a TukTuk to go up to the cave temple and buy tickets, once you buy the tickets it will be included the price for the TukTuk. Once you return after the cave temple you can take any TukTuk as you have already paid for the service. Just need to be careful. Lots of monkeys, just watch out for your bags, don’t carry any food items with you. They will grab.

Than Khao Luang is a heavily visited cave, only a short distance from Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park (easily combined in a single trip). Visitors are required to park at a temple at the bottom of the mountain and ride small shuttle vehicles up the mountain operated by local people. The cost of the shuttle and cave entrance is 25 baht (mercifully no two-tiered pricing). The cave has a few large rooms and is adorned with several large Buddha statues. There are also some nice cave formations. The cave was "developed" for tourism and religious pilgrimage already many years ago and it has extensive lighting and paved walkways. There are about one hundred steps leading down into the cave (and back out).

on our road between Bangkok to Chumphon we saw a little small advertising about this cave and decided spontaneously to visit: After driving through endless nice beautiful landscape - a road between small villages and rice fields...
Even though we drove by several times, we only can recommend this beautiful temple cave: its easy to get there, entrance is just a small donation, compared what you will experience there - just take your time, follow the rules and be aware of monkeys... a shuttle from temple brings you for free to the cave - there you have to take your time and enjoy

Visited the cave on the way to the WFFT animal rescue center. It is a small detour from the main road near Petchaburi town.

Plenty of parking space available at the foot of the hill, although some other reviewers mentioned parking fee of 20 baht/hour, we weren't charged parking fee, the lady there just asked us to buy some drinks from the stalls nearby to support the cost of upkeep, which I think is quite reasonable and happily obliged.

The ticket is 25baht/person and includes a shuttle ride from the foot of the hill to the entrance of the cave and back. I believe there is no dual pricing as well, so foreigners pay the same price as Thais, which is a rarity in Thailand.

The cave is quite big and has three main chambers. There are buddha images throughout the cave and the atmosphere is serene and peaceful. Although if you're there alone, it might feel a bit creepy.

There is also a natural hole in the cave that let in some natural skylight, great place for some stunning photo.

In all, highly recommended if you are going to Hua Hin from Bangkok, it is a small detour for a great experience.

On our way back to Bangkok after a weekend stay in Hua Hin, we decided to take the detour to this interesting temple sight in Petchaburi. Well sign posted from the main road (and with a little help from Google), it wasn't difficult to find. The 25 baht /pers cover charge gave us entry to the cave and a trip in the shuttle bus/tuk-tuk up to the cave entrance. (It would have been a 10 minute walk up a fairly steep hill otherwise with some aggressive monkeys to tend with). We used around 15-20 mins to visit all 3 different chambers and with some of the worshipers shaking their incense sticks it was quite atmospheric. Almost like a scene from an Indiana Jones movie.

PS: Plenty of space for parking - 20thb for the hour and a fresh coconut drink on our return.

Khao Tham Luang is a succession of caves, with the main caves around 50 meters high. All the caves are filled with Buddhasand othe rreligious artifacts. caveat the stairs are quite steep. The entrance fee is 25 baht and includes the round trip from the foot of the hill ( many monkeys there ) to the top in small songtheaws.

I feel very peaceful when you visit this cave. It's really amazing. Watch out for the monkey trying to grab your bag or clothes:)

Feeling a bit negative before making trip as travel literature do not do this justice. Climb down a few flights of steps to gain entry to main chamber. Features a number of Buddha images. Easy to access second chamber and then through archway to the final third chamber. Entry to this third chamber quite atmospheric.

Not sure if my taxi just did not have the horse power to get up the hill to the cave entrance, or wether it is protocol to change vehicles at bottom of hill.
