History


Description

ถ้ำจระเข้ (Tham Chorakhe, Crocodile Cave) is located on Ko Tarutao island. It is reached by boat from the pier at Ko Tarutao village by long-tailed boat on Khlong Phante Melaka (Phante Melaka Canal). The trips are organized by the local Tarutao National Park Visitor Service. The ride upstream takes 20 minutes and ends at the resurgence of the cave river. The cave is a 300 m long river cave, which is not developed, it is visited by boat paddling in and back. Visitors must bring their own lamps, we recommend a headlamp, so you have your hands free, plus a reserve lamp.
