Besides stalactites formations, there are many prehistoric paintings on the wall portraying people and animals. Its name "bigheaded ghost" derived from the unusually large skulls discovered here.

Tham Phet (Diamond Cave)
The stalactite formations of this cave will sparkle like diamond when the cave is lit by a lamp or spotlight.
