The Mystic Hill of Phu Po
Sep 2016 • Couples
This hill is one of the historic Buddhist sites in Kalasin province. It was once home to a small community of forest monks who lived here, far away from society, during the 6th to 10th centuries during the Dvaravati era. They have left two ancient carvings of Reclining Buddhas from the 8th or 9th centuries, one on the lower slopes and one just below the peak. They are covered in gold leaf now and remain objects of veneration. The Buddha on the top is regarded as artistically superior. The views from the top are excellent and the climb up isn't too taxing. There are clumps of bamboo and wildflowers and butterflies to enjoy.

Beautiful Temple
Dec 2014 • Couples
It is an older well kept beautiful temple between Sahatsakhan and Somdet. Many Thai people were also visiting, there is an old wood garden with some unique specimens. Not many steps.
