Located on the northern face of Pha Khongkao Mountain southwest of town, the Bee Cliff Cave Complex consists of several caverns clustered together. The most popular is Tham Pha Pheung (Bee Cliff Cave), which is often called Tham Phou Thong. Others include Tiger Cave, Diamond Cave, and the Gold Mine Cave.
The 70-meter-long Bee Cliff/Phou Thong Cave deceives its visitors with a small entrance leading to a 5-sqm room with a 4-meter-high ceiling and elephant head with a golden tint reflected from the dangling bee hives. The view looking back outside the cave reveals a scene of rice fields, green trees, and the Ka River snaking past the entrance. Inside, a water basin offers a fresh and clean bathing pool.
Location: Cross the Nam Xong in the southern end of town at the Paradise Island Bridge to Ban Houay Nyae. Follow the dirt road for around a kilometer until you see the sign for the Bee Cliff Caves, and the trail leading south to the cliff.
