Tham Luang – Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park consists of 2 tourist service offices:
- Tham Luang Forest Park Office is a plain in the peaceful valley of a limestone mountain. Visitors can set up their own tents in the camping site. The 4 interesting tourist sites near this Forest Park Office include:
- Tham Luang is 7 kilometers long. The cave entrance is very wide and flocks of small bats live inside this cave. There is a waterway in it with different shapes of glistening stalagmites and stalactites. It is an ideal place for adventure tourists.
- Tham Phra is a small cave. The villagers built a big Buddha image inside it where stalagmites and stalactites form in different amazing shapes. It is cool all year round at the cave entrance.
- Tham Muntika The or Tham Phaya Nak is a small cave underneath a cliff. Legend has it that this was a meditation place for a noble monk who died inside the cave. There is a large stalactite shaped like a 2.5 metres tall king cobra at the entrance.
- Tham Liang Pha is caused by the collapse of land causing a hole of 60-80 meters wide and 30 meters high. Million-year-old fossils of gastropods and bivalves are found in this cave. The serows in the mountains came down to drink water trapped in a cave, hence the name of this cave.
- Khun Nam Nang Non is 2 kilometers away from Tham Luang. Visitors will enjoy its serene nature, restaurants, uniquely all year-round fresh water pond – an ideal place to relax, as well as, the unexplored Tham Sai Thong on the cliff above the pond, in which a stream flows through its narrow passages.
