The grounds are beautiful and the cave structures are completely different to most temples we have seen. The grounds are very large and you can see a large, beautiful chedi next to the cave-like structures. This place was especially beautiful in October as the monsoon...More

We visited six temples in Chiang Mai, and liked this one best for its pleasant forest setting. We have seen temples in caves, but this is the first one in a tunnel.

Even if you are feeling "watted out" this place is very different to the other Wats in Chiang Mai. In the grounds is a lake with turtles and fish and adds to the calmness of the environment. The tunnel temple is so peaceful and cool...More

Submerged ancient temple, very interesting and worth the afternoon visit. In an area where many little cafes are for a drink after walking the grounds.

I’d say it’s a “tunnel temple”. So special and feeling peaceful inside! With not many ppl around, it’s a perfect place to stay inside the tunnels for meditation.

We visited the temple during an evening trip to Doi Suthep. It is a very interesting, unusual temple located in the underground tunnel. Worth visiting.

I visited on a day when it was raining, which added even more mystique to this ancient Wat. The cave like tunnels must be such a refuge for those seeking to find peace within through meditation. A completely unique Wat experience - and I've probably...More

We booked a tour with theasia.com for a combined evening trip to Wat Umong and Doi Suthep. Was a lovely time of day to go. The tunnels (not that extensive) were very atmospheric in the evening. They are definitely worth a visit and best to...More

Not really - wheelchair access is not really a priority in Thailand. Very view locations/wats facilitate wheelchairs. You can get into the complex, but not inside temples/buildings
