Sunrise, together with the sea of fog is spectacular! We reached the carpark at 5am, climbed 760 meters up steep and slippery slope to the viewing point. There are small children who are there to offer as guide up the slope. Fee: as per your wish. Bring your own torch light and hot thermal flask of beverage (to enjoy while... More

Its not an easy place to get to BUT well worth the effort. I went with a driver but hiring a vehicle cant be too hard. The rewards beautiful mountain scenery in northern Thailand overlooking fruit orchards and corn fields. Went in October which is just before the main burning season starts which causes the smog to happen but at... More

This mountain has a surreal view of mountain ridges. The mountains change backdrops of colors as time ticks - early morning, the clouds densely covers the village below and all the valleys exposing the peaks of the nearby mountains, at 8:00 am, the clouds begin to evaporate unveiling the valleys and slowly covering the whole view then it shows the...

The road to get there is scenic. You can buy delicious fresh local strawberries all along the road. The view in the morning is beautiful, the air very fresh. it gets really cold at night if you decide to arrive in the evening and wake-up to catch the early morning sea of clouds. You can walk around the view point.... More

We went there during low season (August) and have been lucky to have no rain. Even the hike up to the highest point is steep and quite exhausting, you'll be rewarded with alsolutely stunning panorama views with dramatic cloud formations! A real must see when you're around! Highly recommended!

We were travelling for a small month at the time and we did all the mainstream stuff you could think about (Temples, Temples and Temples). In a bar in Chang Rai we spoke to some locals to talk about the most beautiful places of Thailand. They gave the advice to go to Phu Chi Fa in the early morning. We... More

Was there few years back. Went in December and it was freezing cold. Went to the top and the view was super. Choice of stay...Camping tent or small house. A camp fire with BBQ and some wine is perfect. Long ride as I travelled from Mae Sai all the way to there about 3-4 hour. Worth the experience. Warning...It was... More

Come early to choose the best place for sunrise viewing. If you have problem with cold, do bring enough thick clothes. There is no toilet at the peak, make sure you go to the toilet before you start hiking or simply don't drink too much. If you have limited time for visit, do check for the weather first so you...

Great place to watch the sunrise. The clouds fill the valley below to appear like an ocean. Would recommend taking a powerful camera.

On the 16th of March, 2016 we arrived at the parking lot. May offered her services as a tour guide. My wife said, we don't need a tour guide, we can walk up there ourselves. But then she changed her mind. May is 11 years old, and works as a tour-guide, when she is not in school. She has 5... More
