WHAT TO EXPECT AT SADAN CAVE

When I arrived at Sadan Cave I had to pay an entrance fee of 1000 Kyat (70c) before making my way down the stairs and into the cave. Shoes must also be taken off at the start and appropriate clothing is to be worn to cover your shoulders and knees.

Sadan Cave is incredibly huge inside and one of the biggest caves I have been in. There are a number of monuments at the entrance to Sadar Cave such as a golden stupa, a reclined Buddha, gold monk statues and wall carvings. Once you have explored this area, follow the pathway deeper into the cave. The way is lit so a torch isn’t necessary.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SADAN CAVE – CONTINUED…

The Saddan Cave stretches at least 500 meters from one end to the other and the floor to ceiling height, in my guess, is approximately 30 meters high. Listen out for the almost deafening sounds of the thousands of hanging bats and admire the oversized stalactites throughout the Sadan Cave.

After around 15-minutes of strolling through Sadan Cave, you’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel and emerge at the opposite side of the cave from which you entered. On this side of Sadar Cave is a secret lake with a dozen fishing boats and local vendors selling cold drinks and fruits.

Note: The Sadan Cave is only open during the dry season (November – April) and closed during the wet season.
