Part of an intricate cave temple complex known as the Wat Tham Pla in Chiang Rai, the Tham Ku Kao cave is a must-visit feature during a trek of this stunning site. Visit this iconic locale when you make your stay at one of the finest Chiang Rai hotels in the region, such as the Anantara Golden Triangle Thailand. With welcoming hospitality to look forward to, it is an ideal hotel Chiang Rai has to offer visitors. Although the Tham Ku Kao is not often visited when folks visit the Wat Tham Pla temple, it is an excellent location to engage in a few hours of meditation and deep inner reflection, away from the boom and bustle of the town. The entrance to the cave is wide and easily accessible via large, level steps. You will come across a Buddha statue depicted in his famous reclining pose, during the last few hours of his life on earth. When you venture further in, you will come across a ninety-degree corner that continues for around a hundred metres or so, to end abruptly at a small and clear pool, which is believed to be the beginning of a stream that continues underground. Look past the pool and try to spot a solitary image in a small niche. Although the cave is damp and dark during most times of the year, it affords a few moments’ solitary peace that presents visitors with an opportune moment to reflect.
