For That Sunbeam at Tham Khao Luang Cave, Hua Hin, Thailand

by - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Tham Khao Luang Cave houses many statues of Buddha and is a popular site for prayers with the locals and tourists alike. But what makes this spot extra sweet is, perhaps, the streaming morning sun rays hitting in from the openings of the cave. Together with the majestic presence of the cave formations in the background, it was a heavenly picturesque sight to behold. I must have taken over hundreds of shots at the same spot, in awe of the wonders of nature. 

Tham Khao Luang Cave is a worthy spot to make a visit to. It has all the elements of mystery, nature and cultural touches all in. Come on and experience this cave's charms. 

Be careful while entering the cave via a series of steps, though not long, but may be slippery. 

Be awed by the many Buddha stupas lining inside the cave.

Exploring the cave is safe and does not require manoeuvring or squatting as it is relatively well paved, renovations work were ongoing when we were there in Aug 2017
Move forward from the main site and there you will spot another opening with sunlight streaming in, though less magical.

Venturing further, some parts of the caves were newly installed with coloured lightings.

Reaching the Cave

 You can either walk from the main road's drop-off point or pay 15 Baht for a lorry to ferry you in. I would suggest the later as it can be too hot and the journey quite a distance. Upon alighting at the entrance, be wary of the many over-zealous monkeys hanging around. If you do not want to be startled by these monkeys' agility, keep those edibles away from sight before they snatch your food away.

For a token, you can even feed the monkeys and have them clamouring over you. Fancy a photoshoot? 

Address: Thongchai, Mueang Phetchaburi District, Phetchaburi 76000, Thailand
