Today I went on another solo adventure and missioned 8 km north to climb to a temple known as Wat Tham Sua (Tiger Cave Temple). I’ve seen my share of temples in Asia so far, but this one intrigued me. Mainly because this one features a shrine perched at the very tip top of a massive limestone tower jutting out of the local karst landscape. The Buddha statue gleams a brilliant gold and is visible from town, 8 km away.
I made it there easily enough. The ride only cost me 40 baht (around $1.30) and didn’t take long at all. Once there, I walked a ways and found the namesake of the whole place, the Tiger Cave. It wasn’t all that impressive, just a small cave in the side of the cliff that paled in comparison to the one I visited yesterday.
