Ducking through the jagged and treacherous terrain of the Chiang Rai cave, foreign and Thai divers are seen using pulleys and stretchers to slowly haul the boys to safety.
The intense operation, which came after days of planning, captured global attention and led many to declare the team of doctors and divers as heroes.
The footage follows a video of the young boys in their hospital beds recovering from their 18-day ordeal.
They are expected to stay in hospital for up to 10 days, hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal told a news conference.
That would need to be followed by recovery at home for another 30 days.
