Tham Luang Pha Wiang, a cave some 15km south of the district town. Inside the cavern are oddly-shaped stalactites and it is a beautiful cave to come and explore.
Luang Pha Viang Cave is a big and popular cave of Lamphun. It is situated at Doi Tham Luang in the area of Baan Wang Luang. There are lots of stalactites inside the cave. It is previously named Tham Luang. This is because Luang in Northern Thai language means big and the cave is located nearby Pa Viang District.
Tham Luang Pha Wiang is said to have been known for some 400 years. The cave has always been a stop for Thai monks, who stay for one or two days of meditation. It was – according to local legends – used by robbers of the area to stash their booty. Even the Lanna royalty is said to have stored their gems here during dangerous times.
