“Must see if you're around !”
Review of Erawan Cave

Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Erawan
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 March 2018

Nice place to visit. Takes some effort to get up, but resting areas are provided if needed on your way up the 600 steps. Do carry proper footwear, as the steps are dodgy in some areas, and inside the cave it can get slippery. Marvelous view as you get to the top, as well as at the other side of the cave. Pity that the grounds (& the inside of the cave) are not kept clean - plastic bags, bottles, etc around. So far no admission fee !! Probably best to visit in the morning. We had a good lunch at the street restaurant just left out of the main entrance

Fortunately it was a cool day and we bought water at the bottom before the climb. The climb is very difficult, 611 steps but fortunately the climb is broken by places with seats to rest. After making the climb, you are greeted by the Buddha who sits at the entrance to the cave and you then walk in. Decent shoes help here, the floor is very slippery in places and the ground is quite uneven. Once you're in the main cave you are struck by the enormity of the place, its huge! These caves are beautiful, worth the climb but be warned, getting up there isn't easy.

i went to this place 2 times, the cave is very large but you have to walk through long and high stair.
Not much tourist, feel good.

Located in Loei off Hwy 210 lies this sacred cave with a large sitting Buddha overlooking the limestone karsts in the district.. A small market at the base to stock up with fluids is required before you start to climb the hundreds of steps to get to the cave enterence. There are several stopping points where you can catch your breath while taking in the great views.
