Welcome to Soppong
Sleepy Soppong (สบป่อง; sometimes known as Pangmapha, which is actually the name of the entire district) is a small market town an hour or so northwest of Pai and about 70km from Mae Hong Son. There’s not much to see in Soppong itself, but the surrounding area is defined by dense forests, rushing rivers and dramatic limestone outcrops and is the place in Northern Thailand for caving. The most accessible cave in the area is Tham Lot, but there are many others waiting to be explored. There are also several Shan, Lisu, Karen and Lahu villages in the area that can be visited on hikes.
