Activity centre with great budget accommodation

What we say: 4 stars

Established in 1984 by an Australian man and his Shan wife, Cave Lodge has a wide variety of accommodation options, from dormitory beds through to small bungalows with no attached bathroom to larger ones with private bathroom and hot shower. The price differences reflect increased size and quality, but the standard is generally pretty high, although it's best to check rooms first as some are a touch rundown. A large common area has a fireplace in the middle for cold nights and atmosphere. The walls are lined with maps, photos and reams of terrific information about local history, places, people, flora and fauna, as well as activities to do in the region. Busy staff (when the boss is away the service can be glacial) rush to serve food from the extensive and varied menu of Thai and Western dishes -- the excellent home baked bread is definitely worth a mention, as is the traditional Shan food. A half-day kayaking trip through Tham Lod and down the Lang River is currently their most popular and strongly promoted activity, but they also offer trekking, caving, rafting on large rafts, mountain biking and elephant riding. They advocate independent exploration, and provide a very busy map to all the sites of interest in the area, but recommend that you don't go out alone, and always let them know your intended route and time of return.
