Pai Canyon, Pai

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Canyon Nature / Park
Thin, red ridges with sheer drops on either side create the steep, forest-filled valleys of Pai Canyon. Climb the steps to the viewing platform to enjoy sweeping views. You can head further down the valley following the path of the ridge, but the poorly maintained track follows a precarious route, so be extra careful if you decide to hike. Because it lacks shade, the path is best tackled in the morning or afternoon. To visit Pai Canyon and get the most from your holiday in Pai, create itinerary details personal to you using our Pai vacation route planner.

  • Checked it out on our way from Pai. Interesting place, but make sure you wear appropriate shoes if you plan hiking as it's sandy and slippery when wearing flip flops.  more »
  • Before visitting Pai Canyon, I thought it was just a spot to sit and watch sunset (not very interesting but people say it's a must-see so I still came). But it turned out to be very challenging if you...  more »
  • We went there as a short visit since it's close to town as we rented our motorbikes just that afternoon and didn't want a big drive. We were blown away by the nature, the view, the unique terrain and ...  more »

  • Nice view however as expected lots of people during sunset. Worth a visit to snap some shots. Probably really peaceful during the day with less people. Drinks sold at the bottom near car park.
  • Worth checking out. A short stair case to get to the photo area. Small hikes possible from there. The place does offer some decent views. Some souveneer shops in the parking lot.
  • Beautiful spot - highly recommend for sunset! Set aside a good hour or two to explore the canyon before sunset! Free entry
  • Great thing to go and see in Pai. Nice to walk around. You get excellent views from the top. Best to rent a scooter and ride there. There is parking at the canyon.
  • Didn't get a chance to explore it fully but seems like a fun way to spend a half day - scrambling around some of the intricate pathways and taking in some nice views!
