Walking on a moon-like landscape at Sao Din Na Noi in Na Noi
Locally called "Hom Jom" this natural geological occurrence from soil erosion is located about 6 km from Na Noi in Nan province (North Thailand). It is a bit difficult to find as following Thai tradition the signs at the last few km are missing. But worth the extra 6 km side-trip to see this extraordinary and intriguing moon-like landscape of eroded sand pillars and cliffs made by wind & rain. Although it is also said to be made by the sea about 10.000 - 30.000 years ago, I personally would go for wind & rain. Although there is an information center and toilets there is no coffee shop / restaurant or shop. So take your drink and food with you (buy it in Na Noi). Following are more photos I took when we did visit Sao Din Na Noi. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.
