Welcome

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, the Google Earth kmz file (4,000 cave locations) and bibliography (over 2,150 entries) were updated in November 2017, Other recent additions to the website include numerous new surveys, the distribution of cave geckos and a guide to Thailand's longest and deepest caves. Cave surveys are continuously being added to the website. A series of guide books, including a recently released sporting guide to the longest and deepest caves, are being published through Lulu.com

Acknowledgements  This website would not be possible without the many people who have kindly supplied information, given permission to republish surveys, etc. 

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.

Notes on the Tham Luang survey หมายเหตุในการสำรวจถ้ำหลวง

 
It must be stressed that the Tham Luang survey is very inaccurate and cannot be used, on its own, to select drilling targets.
On the landscape scale it looks OK – Monk's Series heads towards Pha Mi, main cave follows the spine of the mountain, avens and low wet section as the southern end of the cave passes under the gorge – but the error radius for a station at the end of the cave could be hundreds of metres.
