Tham Takobi is 2 km from Umphang. This cave, with 15 entrances, is now the fourth longest cave in Thailand. It is gradually being developed as a tourist destination and is now sign posted from Mae Sot, 170 km away. In 2003 a toilet block was built near The Tourist Entrance. Tham Takobi is formed on three levels. The lowest level is an active streamway which can be followed by cave explorers from nearly the entire distance from sink to resurgence. About 25 m above the streamway is the Tourist Cave and about 25 m above this is the highest level which is called the Bamboo Ladder Cave and the Bedding Cave.
