It's a hike up to the Buddha statue at the entrance to the cave, especially when it's hot, but to me it was worth it. The air inside is cool, the trail is walkable and well lit, and the light coming through from the hole in the roof of the cathedral-size cavern is pretty.
This cave is not comparable to great or popular caves elsewhere, but it's worth a morning if you're in Isaan with time to spare, and it's free - although a small donation is suggested at the bottom of the stairs.
There is a national park in Thailand called Erawan, where there also are some caves; I believe none of them is called Erawan Cave. The cave this review refers to is in Nong Bua Lam Phu province, near the Loei line. The stairs are easily accessible on a paved road from the highway, and there are signs pointing toward the cave all over the region.
