After the sunrise we went and grabbed breakfast before heading off on our caving adventure. There was just the two of us and our guide Mr. Watt (as he was introduced to us). The tour guide once again carried a machete. We hiked for about 30 mins to get to our first cave, the Fossil Cave. It was amazing. We went through the cave for about an hour squeezing through spaces not taller than 3' at times but saw some awesome formations, snakes, spiders (which with legs would span your face), shrimp, bats, and even fish. Overall it was our favorite cave.
We then hiked another 30 minutes to the waterfall cave
Finally after hiking for about an hour with a stop for lunch and a nap we were at our 3rd and final cave, the Xmas Cave. Which was full of massive formations, large bats, and some jade. After that we hiked back to the lodge for a swim and some dinner.
We said goodbye to our new found family of Brits late last night and headed off to bed. Tomorrow we are off to Pai to "try" and relax.
