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

Don't get me wrong, the mountain is beautiful and the sunrise is romantic and all, but first of all, it's not a hike to get there, but a 5 min. Walk, so for those that are used to mountains and hiking u'll be disappointed by...More

Wow. Wow. Wow. It is surreal. Worth the painful early wake up call. The hike to the top is somewhere between beginner and intermediate. It’s dark, bring a light. And proper shoes. But it’s worth being there before the sun is fully up. The sea...More

I was there in mid October and I can tell you It wasn’t 20 degree at all. Being in T-shirt was not comfortable, just bring a sweater or light jacket and you should be good!
