History


Description

ถ้ำปลา (Tham Pla - Fish Cave) is a small cave temple located in the hill east of Pong Ngam. There is a Wat, a series of temples and a long staircase. A small gorge between limestone cliffs leads to the cave. The cave contains a temple with buddha statues and tiled floor. There are numerous monkeys on the hill and the water springing from the cave system is full of fish, probably an explanation for the name Fish Cave.
