First of all there’s a huge mix-up on these pages between: Tham Pla (The Fish Cave), which is about 20 minutes drive north of MHS on the road to Pai, and, Tham Lot cave near Soppong, Pang Mapha district, Mae Hong Son Province which is...More

Lovely scenery and nice parklike setting brooding under a massive limestone karst, but the Fish Cave itself is slightly underwhemling. Still, if you are passing you can stop off to use the restaurants, loos etc or pay the admission and take a look. There are...More

The grounds alone are worth visiting this place about 30 minutes from Mae Hong Son. Feed the fish and just relax for awhile in the beautiful settings.

This is for people that enjoy fish. Mostly carp which can be fed with bread or vegetables which may be purchased on the premises. But it is a walk to enjoy the scenery and enjoy feeding these fish. Tourists pay more than the locals (...More

If you need a break on the road between Pai o Chiang Mai then stay here. For a low entrance fee into the National park you make a small walk and feed the very large fishes. The cave itself is blocked. Only the fishes can...More

This attraction has been very commercially developed. There are lots of vendors attempting to sell you stuff, but it is still a lovely stroll and a nice attraction worth the fee and the time

Yes! Good landscape scene but there is nothing exciting at fish cape. However, if you have time, why don’t chill here?!?!

Fish cave is a nice stop when you just pass by. It's kind of special to see fishes that basically live in caves. However, you see them as well in Los Cave. Hence, it's not a site you specially have to drive to. But if...More

I believe the only way to fish cave is by taxi minibus or tuk tuk about 10/15 mins out of town.
