Bats and Swifts Sound Effects Tham Lod Cave Thailand

by freetousesounds



Tham Lod Cave (Tham means cave), is located in the Pang Mapha district of Mae Hong Son province, in northern Thailand.

This cave is one of Thailand's most remarkable caves. You will find gorgeous limestone stalactite formations and many coffins during the tour.

We waited for hours one evening for the many swifts to come. It's mating season in February, so we recorded the sounds of the bats within the main cave while they waited for the darkness to arrive. Then, about 6:30 p.m., the swifts appeared and circled around the cave entrance. As the sun began to set, the swifts began to enter the cave, and it was remarkable to see how quickly they flew into the tunnel.

The next day, early in the morning around 7:45 am, we went into the cave along with a guide, and happily, we were the only ones there the entire time which allowed us to record the unique ambience within the cave. The bamboo ride was the highlight, and as we moved closer to the exit, the bats began to click and scream louder and louder.

The Schoeps CCM4 and Schoeps CCM8 were used to record everything in DMS (double-mid-side) with the Sound Devices Mixpre6ii.
TASCAM X8 was used to record different recordings outside the cave.
