About Wat Phra That Khao Noi near Nan town
|View over Nan town from Wat Khao Noi in North Thailand|
The Wat Phra That Khao Noi can be visited all year around, daily from 6:00 - 18:00 and entrance is free. Best to be visited in the very early morning for a stunning sunrise view over Nan town. The Wat Phra That Khao Noi is located just 5 km (south)west of Nan town, too far to go there walking. But you could take a bicycle, private car or motorbike. Just follow route 101 south of Nan town in direction of Na Noi for less 1 km, then turn right at the traffic light (there are signs). Follow the road that at the end will lead up-to Khao Noi. Until the foot of the mountain it is easy to do by bicycle, but going all the way up is only for diehards bicyclists. But a little bit up the foot is a parking from where you can take staircase with Naga's and 300 steps up to the top. Otherwise you can continue to all the way up to top and the parking behind the temple. Be aware that at some parts the road is steep.
