A very special adventure is in the Muang on Cave. First you climb a few stairs to the entrance of the cave, whith a small Buddhist altar. A small gap leads through safe stairs into the heart of the huge cave with a powerful stalactite and a Buddha figure. The special experience of this cave is the absolute silence. After having mastered the many steps in the cave and leaving the mountain, it is worth to sip one of the best coconuts next to the entrance.
Not far from the resort is the Doi Saket Temple. The wonderful temple is enriched with amazing decoration styles and the paintings on the walls of Vihan.

The Bua Tong Sticky Waterfall is located north of Doi Saket in the Mae Taeng National Forest Reserve, a beautiful nature park that offers several exciting activities. The undisputed highlight of the park is of course the Sticky Waterfall. This waterfall is truly unique in Thailand and a highly recommended trip. Because of the minerals, there is somehow so much grip on the rocks that you can easily go up the falls. It’s amazing to climb up and down the sticky waterfall like Spiderman. All white spots provide good grip, but you should be a little careful with the slippery green algae. Great fun for young and old!
