We climbed the mountain in a mist of clouds for sunrise and that is how it stayed. No view as we could only see a meter or two in front of us, but you can’t control mother nature so we made the best of it....More

This is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand, if you can get there at the right time (just before sunrise on a day with clear skies). Be warned though - there is no other worthy attraction within 90 minutes drive from this place....More

I can only say that the view is worth the effort. We climbed up for sunset and the view was superb. There were less than a dozen local tourists. The light was perfect for photography. We stayed until way past closing time at 630pm. So...More

This place is not popular among foreign tourists. However, be ready for flocks of local tourists arriving there for the sunrise for the simple reason that it is really beautiful! Locals also head over there to camp close to the peak, w their family/ lovers....More

I rented a motorbike from Chiang Rai and drove about 2,5 hours to get there. Once entering the park, it was quite steep, so you will need to be an experience driver. Once you get to the town, which is quite beautiful, there are plenty...More
