  • In the city of Chiang Saen on the main avenue just two blocks from the Mekong River rises this complex of temples and pagodas. Accessed by a spectacular and endless stairway flanked by impressive dragons. The stepped path leads you also to the monumento-hito of the golden triangle.

Below the pagoda is the Valley with the Mekong River by the Bhuddabogen from one views over.
