This is a beautiful place. I've been told it was featured in a popular asian romance. Beautiful red dirt, it's hard to imagine such strange terrain. Watch your step or you'll be visiting the hospital

Really loved this place, it's easy to get to and not much of a walk to the canyon. Only a few minutes walk uphill so it wasn't strenuous at all. The views are incredible. You get a 360 degree panoramic view and it's beautiful in every direction. There are some scary bits and it's very steep but just be careful... More

Riding my motorbike to the canyon was such a beautiful ride. I watched the sunset at the canyon, it was very nice. But really the surrounding area to get there and back is worth the trip for sure. Definitely by motorbike ;)

Definitely one of the best viewpoint in Pai. Climb about 100 step to the mountain top and you'll see wonderful northern thai mountain view. You can trek around 15-20 mins on the narrow pathway which is the edge of the canyon. Actually there are 2 pathway, one is in front of you. another is on the right. these 2 pathway... More

We rode our scooters to the canyon for sunset, and it is so worth the trip. If you don't have a scooter then get a taxi here, as it is such an amazing view. The paths are pretty ridiculous, but once you get over the first bit the views are so worth it. We just had a long relaxing sit... More

For me I'm a tourist guide I took my group from maetaeng to see around Pai, so Pai canyon is the place on road no.1095 near Pai town, walking up there just 5 minute from parking, so here very nice to see landscape but at noon too hot you should bring drinking water on your time around here,

It's a hot place to visit and you have to climp quite a few steps to get there, so remember to bring water! And wear proper footwear, cause the cravel can be slippery. The sight up there is beautiful and if you have the guts you can get around. A big disapointment though is that they haven't found the time... More

For me, Pai was one of the most enjoyable places to just drive around and taking in the beauty of it's surroundings. The canyon is another classic example of what Pai has to offer visually, and considering it's free, it's a great visit for a few hours to have a trek around. Cliffs can be quite steep into the canyon... More
