  • It is about 10km from city. Better to use motorcycle to get here because the road is quite bad . The view is nice here, but ,since this place is excavation place, it is "dusty" around there.  more »

  • THIS place actually is a sand mining area. The ongoing mining activities creates hills and canyons. People find it interesting to take photographs of the place specially in Golden Hours that is in the morning or in the afternoon. The place is Instagramable despite the path to the place quite hard to travel. It's best to use motorcycle to get to the location. It will be easy to move to other spots since the place quite big. Anyhow there is other way to reach the location by your own car. Just follow the route of dump trucks of the site.
  • This place isn't managed as a recreational place so there are not many things to do here aside from taking photos. It's not far from the city but the road isn't good for vehicles so be careful. The mining activities continuously change the shape of the hills. The last time I was there, the hills didn't look good as in my previous visit.
  • It's actually a Quarry. What's left of it is today's scenery, haystack hills consists of volcanic rock layers. The view itself is quite pleasant, especially when around sunset. Quite dusty and windy in here, if you want to visit Brown Canyon I recommend to bring your own mask. Don't get too close to the hills, it's quite high and vertical. Be aware of rock avalanche.
  • good for earth science study, photography and enjoying landscape. downside is the road has not been paved, and the place is a sand mining location.
  • Nice place to take a photo especially in the weekend, because in weekdays the operation of mining still running. If you want to come here, make sure you come around morning or afternoon because the weather is so hot.
