Overlooking the valley of Pua from the Wat Phra That Chom Chaeng in Pua

Destination Travel Guide Nan, North Thailand


In Myanmar they say "every hill should have a pagoda", but here in North Thailand they are also good at it. This is the Wat Phra That Chom Cheang on hill in Pua, the temple consists of a golden pagoda. The pagoda itself is not so impressive but the view over the valley of Pua is, especially at late afternoon. The Wat Phra That Chom Chaeng can be reached via a small road behind the village Don Keaow. Halfway there is a small parking where the stairs guarded by naga's is leading to the pagoda. Luckily the road continues to the pagoda itself. Be aware that if you like to sit here watching sunset that the road has no lights and it goes thru a small forrest. From the sala next to the stairs you will a stunning view over the valley of Pua. I thought that from here you would have a beautiful sunset view but unfortunately most of the sunset is just behind trees. Of course this will improve a bit during the cool season. Following are a few more photos I took. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.
