    Anybody heard of the DRAGON CAVE near Surat Thani?

    Hi everybody,

    I have heard of this Dragon Cave near Surat Thani, where monks prepare herbal teas and such for visitors. Has anyone ever been there or knows anything about?

    Thanks in advance

    Have you been there?

    Since I can locate no information on it, I'm wondering if it even exists. The Sacred Sights weblink listed about is also vague as ever.

    Thanks!

    I think you will find it's not in Surat Thanni it's in Phangnga Province:

    If it is the one Phangnga (looks like it from the photos), it is a few miles due west of Thaput on the old road (Route 4) that goes over the hills - and then a couple of miles down a little track. Haven't been there for a few years though. Then, you had to walk up quite a few flights of steps and once in the main 'cave' there was if I remember correctly a female nun dressed in white.

    Didn't see any beverages being brewed but it was fairly interesting and as a one off, a good place to spend an hour or so. Nothing special but semi-interesting - to me anyway.

    ..... and yes, FarangRed, ThaleNoi is not a bad little spot either much though depending on the time of year. There used to be a dirt road (4x4 only in the wet) from ThaleNoi across to Ranot but that has since been replaced with an interesting 'elevated' road with some stunning scenery along the way. Well worth a look.

    My mistake

    I thought it was in Surat Thani. No wonder i couldn't find any details on it.

    Thank you so much guys. That was a lot of help from all of you.
