Hear about this from a local. It's a 2 hr drive from CR and you have to leave at 3.30am ish to get there for sunrise. Tours don't go there so you have to get a taxi - lots of super windy roads to get there, I was quoted between 2,000-3,500 baht for a taxi from tour companies in tour.... More

Very early start (3.30am) to drive from Chiang Rai only to get there about 6/7am and everything was shrouded in mist. However, we rented bungalows nearby for 200B for half a day and waited until later. A very nice although quite taxing walk to the top was definitely worth it for the amazing views. There was only the 4 of... More

Everybody visits Phu Chi Fa to see the sunrise (including me). There are tons of people scrambling up early in the morning in the dark trying to get to the vantage point to get a shot of the sun peaking up from the sea of clouds gathered over the valley. It is truly an awe inspiring sight. The first tip... More

Sunrise on 5 Jan 2014 was INCREDIBLE. We stayed a night at a resort at the foot of Pu Chi Fa. Arriving late into the night, the street market was about to close. We quickly found a place to stay (600B a night) and tucked in early, cos the view of the morning sunrise was promised to be spectacular. We... More

You have to walk to the top, about 700 m and watching the sunset was spectacular.You have to be careful as the walk up is slippery .Just to sit there and look across the land was so relaxing .

Visited the summit both at sunset and sunrise.... simply spetacular! It was quite a long journey from Chiang Mai but it was all worth it! Make sure to have some thick clothes as the temperature up there is quite low =)

I shared a cab with a friend from Chiang Rai and we set off at 4am to make sunrise. After a sleep in the car on the 90 min journey and a quick 20 minute walk up a muddle, slippery slope the views were worth waking up to

Once you are already here, its a must see place!! But would be difficult if you have kids you might not want to because its got a long walk up ans quite very high so it could be very difficult for the kids.

While visiting a friend in Phu Sang, a town in the Phayao province, we hired a Songtaw to take us to Phu Chi Fa around 5:00 am in order to see the sunrise. We hiked up the mountain around 5:00 am, which took about 30-45 minutes, it was cold and dark but once we arrived at the top and the... More
