Visiting the Wat Chong Khao Chat in Udon Thani
While making a sight-seeing trip to visit a friend of us living in Nong Wua So we passed the mountain range Phu Phan along route 2315. And on top the mountain is a huge sitting Buddha. Although it is not really a temple, of course we made a stop and I walked up to the top of the cliff. Walking up I saw that the all cliff is actually scattered with Buddha images. And there is still work in progress in making more Buddha images. Standing on the cliff you have a beautiful view over the valleys on both side. In the east the view in direction on Udon Thani and in the west the view in direction of Nong Bua Lam Phu. When driving towards the mountain range you see that the crossing point is of course almost the lowest point, but once up there you really have an amazing view. Following are some more photos of this temple in the middle of nowhere.
