Caves are the products of nature which are formed through historical precipitation and time changes. The stalagmites, stalactites, stone pillars, grottoes and waterfalls in the cave are mysterious and desirable! Going to cave exploration is an activity to appreciate the wonders and have a relax, but there are dangers hidden in the beautiful caves. Especially during the rainy season, you cannot go to the following caves during your travel in Thailand:

Maeusu Cave

Maeusu Cave is a huge limestone cave that is located in Mae Moe National Park, Tak. The Maeusu River flows through the mouth of the cave, then surrounds the cave, and finally flows into the Wadi Moi. There are 3 grottoes in the cave with many beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. During the day, the sun shines on the sandstone through the cave mouth, making it very shining and very beautiful. Maeusu Cave is only open during the cool and hot seasons, that is, from December to April of the following year. The water level in the cave increases during the rainy season, making it unsuitable for play.
