Walking at Wang Sila Leang in Pua

Destination Travel Guide Nan, Thailand
Entrance of Wang Sila Leang in Pua, Thailand

Wang Sila Leang is where the Kwang Khun River exits the mountains & jungle of Doi Phu Kha National Park. It is easy to reach, just go to Baan Hua Nam Mushroom Farm park your car, have a drink & snack and then walk the last 500m to the beginning of Wang Sila Leang. It is dubbed to be the Grand Canyon on Nan but then of course in a much smaller scale. Best time to visit is in the dry season when the water level is low. There are 2 options, the first one is to climb down into the river and then walk thru the river. But the climbing down is a bit not so safe. The other option is to follow the walking trail on the left side. Be aware that this also involved a little bit climbing and that the trail is not always safely secured. Photo above is the entrance, photos below are made following the walking trail for about 500m. See also Wang Sila Leang Grand Canyon.
