HANDOUT / AFP / CHIANG RAI PROVINCIAL PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICE

Thailand officially reopened the Tham Luang cave for the first time since the dramatic rescue of 12 boys and their football coach last year.

According to media reports, nearly 2,000 visitors flocked to the reopening of Tham Luang cave on Friday.

Guests are not allowed beyond the entrance for now, but officials said they were considering allowing people deeper inside after surveying the safety of the route.

 The cave had been closed to visitors since the Wild Boars football team were trapped for 17 days in the flooded caverns.
