A great Wat to visit if you want the feeling of an older and more peaceful Wat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A lovely jungle setting alongside this. Don’t go to feed the fish if you are scared of pigeons though!

I really enjoyed our trip to Wat Umong as it was so different to the rest of the temples around Chaing Mai. We started off by going to Doi Suthep then on the way back from that we stopped here. At this temple there is tunnels that you can walk through and peaceful lakes. It is in the forest and so is surrounded by nature which is very nice too. I really recommend a visit if you are going to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep too as they are reasonably close (30 minute drive or less)

LOcated on the west side of Chiang Mai and accessible off Soi Suthep or Canal Road, the temple grounds are forested with a lake, libraries, meditation areas, and a shrine inside a hill with a chedi on top of the hill.

This is a lovely temple and grounds a little off the beaten path. We visited this gem late in the afternoon on a weekday and there was not another person around. The 700 year old temple has been restored at least once and is actively being used by Buddhist monks.

Wat Umong not a typical Buddhist Wat. And that makes it charming for me. Do yourself a favour and ware comfortable shoes when visiting this Wat.
