Tham Khao Kop is toured completely by boat, rowboats shuttle passengers through narrow passages and open caverns. Typical is a high canyonlike profile of the passages. Most impressive is a very low passage, where passengers are laying on the bottom of the boat. The guides move the boats by pushing on the roof of the cave while lying on their backs themselves.

A canal from the Banthat Mountain Range splits up into three at Khao Kop. Two canaly flow aroung the mountain, one through the mountain underground. This is Tham Kao Kop, with its cave stream.
