Another photo from the spectacular Tham Lod Cave, Northern Thailand along the Mae Hong Son region. There are no kayakers for scale in this image like my previous shot, instead a bamboo raft with a local guide float patinetly at the exit of the cave. He was waiting for tourists to jump aboard for a ride up the river, which runs straight through the middle of the cave system. These guys take people through the cave constantly, stopping at all 3 caverns to let people off to explore inside the cave. I just loved how easy going, down to earth and friendly they were, always smiling and always having a good time even if it meant sitting around waiting for most of their day.
