This website has information on the caves of Thailand that has been compiled over several years. It is hoped that this is of use to those interested in caving in the region and stimulates exploration in the country. I would be very interested in receiving any information (references, grid co-ordinates, reports, surveys, etc.) on Thai caves.

The longest and deepest cave lists have been updated to April 2014, while the Google Earth kmz file with over 3,470 cave locations was been uploaded in October 2013, Other recent additions to the website include numerous new surveys, the distribution of cave geckos, the report of the SMCC 2009 & 2010 expeditions to Nan and a guide to Thailand's longest and deepest caves. Cave surveys are continuously being added to the website. A series of guide books are being published through Lulu.com. A Bookshop has been added to the website linking directly to the Lulu Storefront and displaying the volumes which are currently available.

This website is hosted by the Shepton Mallet Caving Club (www.shepton.org.uk). Many thanks to Sean Howe (www.sean-howe.co.uk) for his ongoing work in maintaining the website.

SMCC Nan 2014 Expedition

The fourth Shepton Mallet Caving Club expedition to Nan from 18-27 February 2014 was again very successful. Fourteen cavers spent nine days in the field, extending Tham Pha Phueng, the deepest cave in Thailand, to a sump at -476m and surveying a total of 4.6km of cave passage.
