Tham Lod Cave

Tham Lod cave is about 50km north of Pai in far north Thailand. It’s an epic motorbike ride there through winding roads and beautiful mountainous scenery.

Tham Lod is the largest natural limestone cave system I have ever been in and it has the added attraction of having a stream run right through it. Giant fish are everywhere in the shallow water and thrive with no natural predators. There is no artificial light in the cave, so the best way to explore it is with a guide, who takes you into its depths using a lamp and bamboo raft.

The pitch black chambers are huge and very hard to capture on camera. The cave is also famous for its prehistoric wooden coffins that can still be found in there. I would have loved to have been able to go in alone to explore and give myself some more time to shoot in the challenging environment, but i guess that will have to wait till next time.
