Lod Cave

We rode our scooters 55 kms from Pai to Lod Cave and stayed the night at the Cave Lodge. Being a birder, I wanted to see the natural wonder of the returning swifts, and a tour of this fascinating cave was a bonus.
Our cave guide was also our waitress at Cave Lodge
Pre-historic coffins made of teak logs were found high in the cave
A ride on a bamboo raft through the cave to the exit
Above me the Fork-tailed Swifts returned to roost in Lod Cave
The tens of thousands of returning swifts filled the sky for over half an hour
The next morning I rose early to see the sunrise. I wasn't disappointed!
