Muang-On Cave is situated in San Kamphaeng about 30km east of Chiang Mai near the hot springs. The road leading to Muang-On Cave goes up the side of a hill to a small car park. There are several vendors selling food and souvenirs here and there is plenty of shaded seating available. If you do not have a water bottle, it is a good idea to grab a cold drink here as it can be a hot climb.From the car park you have to climb up a steep Naga Serpent stairway, about 180 steps, before reaching the entrance to the cave. Inside the caves you will pass by grottos dotted with shrines most of which are lit with fluorescent lights. In the main cavern floor you can see a huge 10m-long reclining Buddha. Above the statue there is said to be a fossilised dinosaur skeleton.Entrance fee is 20 bath.
