Presentation Phu King Fah Monastery

Thai name : สำนักสงฆ์ภูกิ่งฟ้า
My opinion:
The Phu King Fah Monastery is a forest Buddhist temple and monastery located on a piece of mountain. In a pleasant setting that exudes tranquility, it offers lovely views over the valley, especially from its small pontoon at the left of the chedi. The interior of its chedi is also superb.

The Phu King Fah monastery is quite remote. It's up to you to judge whether it's worth the journey to get there and in particular driving the 8 kilometers of track that leads there if you go up directly by car. There is also a possibility to access it by stairs that climb from the plain but then choose your destination point carefully on your GPS because if you choose the temple, it will guide you to the monastery and not the starting point of the stairs.

How to get to Phu King Fah Monastery ?

The monastery is 80 kilometers from Nakhon Ratchasima city. To come to Phu King Fah Monastery, you will need to have your own transportation and in the rainy season, or after a heavy downpour, it is advised to have a 4x4 because the last 8 kilometers are a dirt track which passes through fields and forest. A regular car could bog down easily. Probably to access the starting point of the stairs the road is better but by default Google Map tells you how to get to the top.
