Tham Bo Ya

Bo Ya Cave is Hin Kon Village in Tambon Nong Krot, around 30 kilometers from the city on the San Nakhon Sawan-Lat Yao road.  Another 6-kilometer road leads to Wat Tham Bo Ya (Wat Thep Nimit Song Tham).  A stairway at the foot of the hill leads up to the cave.  The cave itself has 3 sections.  The first has a large main Buddha image, the second further in is a dead end with a pond called Bo Nam Thip that is believed by locals to be sacred and the third section is an exit out the other way.  Apart from the sacred pond, the cave has beautiful stalagmites and stalactites.

Getting There: Use Highway No. 32 (Asian Highway) from Nakhon Sawan to Kamphaeng Phet for about 15 kilometers, then turn left at the intersection into Road No. 1072 (Nong Ben-Lat Yao) for about 1 kilometer.  From there, take a left turn at the sign into Wat Si Uthumphon for about 6 kilometers and turn right at the sign into Wat Thep Nimit Song Tham (Wat Tham Bo Ya).  The road is a laterite road.  It is altogether about 22 kilometers from the city.
