  • After a tiring climb, you will discover this temple has nothing extraordinary except that it offers beautiful views of Mae Hong Son, the airport and the nearby forests.

  • Just 2 white cheddis, nothing much else interesting even the famous sunset is not terrible. Overrated in my view, the temples around the Lake are more interesting.

  • Wat Phra that DOI Kong MU is mueang Mae Hong Son province. Can drive up to the spectacular views of the city and also with the sunset. Estimated dumping will open fire at Phra that look beautiful.

  • Highest temple in Mae Hong Son I believe, You can have gorgeous view of Mae Hong Son & Pai Mountains Valley here. I walked up the stairs from the lower entrance to the top without knowing there is a tarmac road up to the top. It is approximately 15~20 minutes walk if you climbed up to the hill. Else you may drive up the hill follow the tarmac road. I would say it is a must to come here when you visit Mae Hong Son.
  • Great place to watch sunrise and sunset - a really beautiful temple and best view of the town below
  • A religious sacred temple on top of the hill west of town. A tarmac road leading to this temple. There are two big white Chedi on top. from the top you can have the view of Myanmar mountain range and the Pai Valley and the city of Mae Hong Son. Tourist come here for the prayers and to view the sunrise and sunset.
  • Nice walk up. Great view
  • Sacred pagoda, nice cityview point

Where to stay in Mae Hong Son

Though Mae Hong Son generally lacks accommodations that are anything other than functional, you can expect to find acceptable lodgings here--especially if you're a budget-conscious backpacker. These mostly come in the form of clean, no-frills rooms in guesthouses or hostels. Be prepared for prices to fluctuate, rising during the popular season (between November and January). If you're able and willing to spend a little more, explore the more upscale midrange options on the outskirts of the town center.
