Welcome to Khao Tham Center

Vipassana meditation retreats are offered in the beautiful forested hills above Baan Tai, on Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand. The retreats are taught and managed by experienced meditation teachers at no charge. All meals and accommodation are provided, and those costs can only be covered by your donation.
