Well worth stopping for 10 minutes or so as you leave Pha Taem national park. 3 very impressive gigantic "mushrooms" naturally formed from rock. If you want to see this on a grander scale, go to Phu Pha Thoep National Park, near Mukdahan.

This is a great place to check out within Pha Taem National Park. The stone toadstools are quite impressive and you can climb around the area.

It's part of Pae Tam national park.. amazing how natures created. You can reach by car and walk around. Need little climbing to visit closely and see "Lan Hin Tak", the divide stones which located a bit higher.

This is our first stop after entering Pha Taem National Park. It has very easy access to the rocks. Not much of the walking trail, but it was steep.

These formations are commonly occurring within Pha Taem National Park and seem unique to the area. They appear to be the result of the effects of weathering (erosion) on the limestone geology over millions of years. There are a number of sites within the park...More

On the way to visit the cliff paintings in Pha Taem National Park you'll pass a turn off to this attraction. It's well worth stopping in for some great shots of these impressive rock formations that have a badlands feel to them. It can be...More

An interesting site with massive mushroom shaped rock formations formed over millions of years. Not a great place to visit on a rainy day!
