In the mountains of Doi Phu Kha are along route 1256 from Pua to Bo Klua 2 shrines to honour Chao Luang Phukha, the first ruler of what is now called Nan province. And next to this shrines is the famous Chompoo Phukha tree that blossoms in February. Once a year there is a festival to honour the spirits that protect the tree and to honour the old rulers of the Nan dynasty.
