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.

Following the Tham Luang cave rescue a summary of the rescue has been uploaded. Other recent updates included the longest and deepest cave lists, the Google Earth KMZ file (with over 4,700 cave locations) and the bibliography (2,412 entries). Other recent additions to the website include numerous new surveys and a paper giving full taxonomic and distribution data on the fauna recorded in the limestone caves of Thailand. A series of guide books, including the recently released Caves of Thailand Volume 1 (Eastern Thailand) and Volume 2 (Northern Thailand), are being published through Lulu.com

Doi Angkhang Expedition - Chiang Mai - February 2020

In February 2020 a team of twenty-two cavers, mainly from the Shepton Mallet Caving Club and Chiang Mai Rock Climbing Adventures, explored and surveyed caves in the Doi Angkhang region of Chiang Mai province. This mountainous karst region is on the border with Myanmar and the area explored included parts of the Angkhang Royal Agricultural Station, Doi Phahom Pok National Park and Pha Daeng National Park. In two weeks a total of 5.4 km of passage was mapped in 14 caves.
