Wat Na Khu Ha

Thai name : วัดนาคูหา

GPS : 18.128190, 100.318254 (See on the map)


Wat Na Khu Ha Temple is located 27 km east of Phrae City. The main attraction of the place is its bamboo bridge over the fields that connects the mountain bhind to the big sitting Buddha at the back of the temple. During the rice season from July to early November, there are rice paddies in little steps in the valley around the statue and under the bamboo bridge while in the dry season (when I was there given that I went there at the end of March) rice paddies are replaced by peanuts, corn and sunflowers fields. So it's beautiful all year round, although it's probably even prettier during the rice season.

The bridge is at the left of the sitting Buddha. At its end, you will come to a path that climbs the mountain and leads to 2 caves, Tham Yai, the large cave whose descent via a long ladder to enter can be quite impressive and Tham Noï and also Pa Singh, a viewpoint that dominates the fields crossed by the bamboo bridge leading to the Buddha. It worths going up there even if the climb is a bit hard and good shoes advised. Also take a flashlight to visit the caves. I also recommend you to make a stop at Wat Phra That In Kwaen 4 kilometers on the road back to Phrae.

Practical information about Wat Na Khu Ha

No admission fee
There is no public transportation to get to Wat Na Khu Ha. It will be necessary to have your own vehicle or you will need to privatize a songthaew in Phrae even if it is not always easy because foreign tourists are very rare here. And as I said to take the best of your trip, cumulate with the visit of Wat Phra That In Kwaen not far from Wat Na Khu Ha.
