Chiang Dao Cave is a traditional way-point when traveling through the far north of Chiang Mai Province. While quite small and not world-class spectacular, they are easily accessible and charge a modest entrance fee. If you are in the area and need a break from the road, this could be a good option.
The cave is co-located with Wat Tham Chiang Dao (literally Chiang Dao Cave Temple). Some stalagmites have been converted into Buddha images (with the help of concrete), so you will be expected to show a degree of reverence in the cave, and can rent shawls to cover shoulders/knees if necessary.
At the front of the cave is a brilliantly clear pond stocked with a lot of well-fed fish.
