The summit of Phu Tok at Chiang Khan
|Sunrise at 6 in the morning|
For sunrise we had to be there at 5:45 and at 6 we were on top. Of course we were not alone, although we were the only non-Thai people. On the top is a small walking path around the TOT communication complex, and of course a few view-points. About 1 hours later coming down it was time for early breakfast. There are of course a few street-stalls selling Thai food, but there is also a nice open-air restaurant selling simple western or Thai breakfast. And coffee, tea or choc-co. All together a nice start of the day during our trip in off the beaten track in Loei. Another nice place to visit nearby is "Keang khu kud", rapids in the Mekong River. There a few restaurants and a little market selling the famous local dried, sweet coconut.
