Tham Phung Chang is located within the precincts of Wat Prachim Khet, behind the City Hall on Phetchakasem Road. It is a large grotto in the heart of Khao Chang. The part that is called “Phung Chang” or “elephant’s belly” features a wonder of nature in the form of picturesque stalagmites and stalactites.
Visiting Tham Phung Chang is a soft adventure tourism activity. Visitors will have to wade through water and ride a raft and canoe in order to get inside to admire the naturally-created stalagmites and stalactites, which are of various amazing shapes not to be seen anywhere else.
Among the magnificent formations are the ones that feature hundreds of elephants walking one after another to form a circle, an elephant sitting under the Chatra umbrella, and a golden ladder that sparkles in the light. The air inside is cool and well-ventilated. Visiting Tham Phung Chang will take approximately 1.30 hours.
