Wat Chalermprakiat: The Temple (Almost) in the Sky (Lampang)
This is a must see in unseen temple in Thailand, located at Jae Hom district in Lampang province. Some 165 km. or about 2:30hrs drive from Chiang Mai
Wat Chalermprakiat brings us closer to the heavens – or to the sky if you wish.
You will have to walk up 20-30 minute to the pagodas at the top. It’s almost entirely uphill and much of the way is on steel staircases, there are lots of places to rest on the way up and take photograph. At the top absolutely stunning and breathtaking views and this is a highlight.
The mountain tops and cliffs are dotted with a number of stupa and temple structures, the materials for which was all carried up the hill by hand. The temple is may look like some ancient temple but it was actually built in 2004 to commemorate 200 years since the reign of King Rama IV of Thailand.
This is an amazing and beautiful place to visit and I highly recommend it to all.
