The cave in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand was the center of world attention for weeks when 12 Wild Boar footballers were trapped prompting an international rescue effort. 

Everyone was saved and a Netflix movie soon followed. 

Now parts of the cave have reopened to the public. The entrance and first chamber and an area where there is a spirit house can be accessed by the public who are being let in a few dozen at a time. 

The cave is open from 8.30 am to 4.30pm. 

More than a million and a half people have visited the cave since the drama in July of last year but they have not been allowed inside until now. 

Rites to celebrate the occasion were held by local officials.
