We stayed in an excellent little guesthouse in the small town of Ba Ha Hin, the rooms were basic but did at least boast warm showers and the food was sensational. It was a shame to move on. Ba Ha Hi offers a good jumping off point for visiting the cave at Than Kong, a 7 km long cave with a river running through it. Its moments like this that I was glad we had hired a motorbike as getting here by public transport would have been awkward and pricey. We hired a boat to take us through the caves which are some 100m high and wide in places and included a stop off en route to visit a dry cavern which contained a number if stalagmites which are lit up with various coloured lights. I have to say that the trip through the caves was breathtaking, and I'm sure any other caves I see will not compare to these. After the return trip we took off on a 3 hour trip to the town of Lak Sao.
