  • It was the suggestion of a friend I made in Bangkok to go here. I took the monk's trail, the Thai police aiding me in arriving to entrance - and I walked, led by orange cloth, to the top - sweating in...  more »

  • What an amazing place! Do yourself a favor and hike the trail for a more authentic experience. Get there early and it's easy to beat the tourists.
  • I like this place a lot, you can sit down and do some meditation without any disturbance by the crowded. There are many walk paths to explore around the temple. There are a little creek to settle down and enjoy the view of downtown Chiang Mai. You may need some mosquitos repellent since you are in the forrest. It is an excellent place for meditation and a break from the crowd.
  • It's the best temple in Chiang Mai, much better than the most famous one. There were so much incredible view around the temple. It was really quiet and peace due to not much people visited which can clean ur mind and get ur brain some rest, I'm glad that I went to this temple during this trip in Chiang Mai.
  • Compared to other temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Pha Lat is not colourful or painted with gold, but it's a very authentic and spiritual temple. The beautiful part is actually the area where the monks live, behind the temple, next to a river in the middle of the forest. It's immersed in nature, with an amazing view, very quiet, and becomes one with the nature surrounding it.
  • Quiet and serene place, hike from monk trail at end of suthep road. Nice temples and meditate at the centre of the pond on a rock looking at the great view. Head upwards to doi suthep, hike until come to main road, turn left and cross over to next part of hike.
