During the trip, the group would consist of less than 12 people and they have to register in advance and be checked for any adverse medical conditions before exploring the cave which opens for up to 50 people a day. The tourists were accompanied by five professional guides with safety equipment, said Chutidet.

As of press time, it was reported by Chutidet that there were 35 people signed up for the cave exploring. The national park officials would put them into a queue and contact them back for further notification.

Chutidet emphasized the safety of the tourists, exploring the deeper chambers could prove to be difficult. The tourists must dress and follow the professional guides’ instructions strictly.

Officials have dismissed online complaints about the prices for the cave being too expensive and said the tourists who explored the caves had no complaints and found the price reasonable.
