The owners of Cave Lodge can provide plenty of useful information about Tham Lot and other caves in the region, and organize robust, active guided trips (from B600/person, including equipment and lunch). They also offer kayaking, including trips through Tham Lot, plus 6km of fun rapids (in the rainy and cool seasons; from B650). Maps for self-guided walking from the lodge to local Thai Yai, Karen, Lahu and Lisu villages are available, as well as local, English-speaking guides for full-on trekking (typically B2500 for 3 days). Other activities include learning to weave or cook, mountain-biking and bird-watching.
