About 30km west of Lopburi is Wat Khao Wong Kot, home to an enormous bat cave . At sunset hundreds of thousands of bats emerge for their nocturnal hunt. To find the cave, take the 280 steps to the right of the temple entrance.

The temple can be reached by taking a train (second-/third-class ticket 21/6B) north from Lopburi to Ban Mee station and then catching a motorbike taxi. Buses (25B) also run hourly to Ban Mee. However, the last train to Lopburi departs at 6.12pm while the last bus is at 5.30pm so you will need private transport to witness the bat exodus.
