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.

A new series of The Caves of Thailand books are being published. These describe all known caves, rock shelters, resurgences, stream sinks and other sites of speleological interest, along with surveys and references.
Volume 1 - Eastern Thailand
Volume 2 - Northern Thailand
Volume 3 - Western and Central Thailand
Volume 4 - Peninsular and Southern Thailand 

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.

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.
