Not like every other temple in Chiang Mai, this one is worked into the nature. It’s old so not as magnificent as the newer ones but considering the age of it, it is pretty inspiring. When I got dropped off there, I thought I was...More

We hiked the Monk's Trail to Wat Pha Lat and the hike and this temple were our favorite parts of our trip to Thailand. It is peaceful, beautiful, and not a lot of people are around.

Amazing temple, nice and quiet scenery. Different than most of Northern Thailand’s temples and a must see, according to us. Let’s hope it will not overload with tourists like Doi Suthep...
