Phraya Nakhon Cave

Phraya Nakhon Cave
Yesterday a group of about 30 of us decided to go explore the Phraya Nakhon Cave. We left Hua Hin around 10am on 2 songtows and drove about an hour out to the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park where the cave is located. The drive alone was awesome because we were leaving the city and heading out into a more rural area of Thailand.

The National Park was located right on the water so when we arrived we went out and took pictures of the beach and then decided to have some lunch before we began the intense hike to the cave.
We had two options on how to get to the cave we could either take a boat over or hike. Most of us decided on the hike. We heard it was about a 45 minute hike but we did not know how intense it was going to be. We first started the hike up and had amazing views of the water. The stairs or more like rocks I should say were quite the challenge to climb up, but even harder to climb down. After hiking up for a while we started going down to where we ended up on a beach. We walked along the beach for about ten minutes following signs to the Phraya Nakhon Cave. Following the signs led us to the start of another hike that took us about 30 minutes to climb (this was the hardest one, but well worth it). It was incredibly hot and we were all dripping sweat.

In the end the hike was a million times worth it. The cave was one of the most incredible things I have ever seen in my life and definitely by far the best experience I have had in Thailand thus far. I was completely in awe upon entering the cave and couldn’t believe my surroundings. There is a temple inside the cave called the Tetrahedron Pavillion that was made by hand in Bangkok and then brought to the cave to be assembled. The whole day was amazing and a great experience with great people! I posted a few pictures below from the cave, but once again pictures don’t do it justice (I feel like I’m going to be saying that a lot)
