Tham Luang is located in Khun Nam Nang Norn forest park. Tham Luang Cave is the 4th longest cave in Thailand in the length of 10,316 meters and has 3 smaller caves inside. The Stalagmite and Stalactite could tell that Tham Luang Cave is probably 230 million years already. It is one of the famous tourist destinations for the adventurous person. You can travel there except for the rainy season. Department of the national park will shut down the cave during this season due to the safety of the tourists.

You have to be prepared if  you want to travel to the cave
#1 You have to dress properly. It must be comfy enough for you to move around.
#2 Wear the hat to prevent the dripping water in the cave or it could be the bat dropping and also the stalactite above your head
#3 The most important is the flashlight or lantern. Never use the torch because that could destroy the stone inside the cave
#4 You can travel to the cave in every season except for the cave that water can get through, it's forbidden during the rainy season.
