Phae Muang Phi is especially known for a very small part of the park, the one with the rock formations resulting from natural erosion. This landscape of stone columns (some of which rise to almost 30 meters high) is reminiscent of Cappadocia in Turkey although here the dimensions are much more modest. The name of the place comes from a legend telling that an old woman went to the forest to look for bamboo shoots to cook and got lost. While looking for her way out she found money and gold. She wanted to carry it with her but still could not get out of the forest because the angel who protects the place prevented it. The more she tried to move forward, the more it seemed that someone was pushing her back. She finally gave up her treasure and came out of the forest to ask the other people to get the gold and silver where she left it off. But when they arrived, they were gone. So they named the place Phae Mueang Phi, the forest of the city of ghosts.
In the rest of the park, you'll be able to take a few walks among various types of rare plants on nature learning trails. There is a small path that overlooks the stone columns and another that offers a nice view on the Phra That Cho Hae mountain.
