Official description

Tham Khang Khao also named Bat Cave is located in the Pha Phu Man National Park. Every morning and evening, at sunrise and sunset, a million or so bats return or leave en masse. It truly is a memorable spectacle. The cave is located about 50m up a small mountain, This means you have a perfect view of the line of bats. You can see the long, thick line of them for kilometres into the distance. At the cave entrance the smell of the bat droppings is, at first, overpowering, but after a few minutes, you get used to it.
