COVID-19 : a lot of information, especially about transport in Thailande are temporarily not accurate due to the suspension or reduction of the frequency in domestic flights, bus lines, trains, boat services ... to limit the progression of the coronavirus in Thailand or to face the impressive fall in the number of passengers.

This temple perched on a mountain 23 km from Sakon Nakhon city definitely worth a visit ! It is definitely my favorite temple in the province. Once arrived, you will wander in a large area that brings together most of the elements of the temple. The highlights are: the cave with Buddhas carved on the wall, the large statue of the monk, the wooden wihaan, the golden chedi placed on a rock which has a reclining Buddha carved on one of its faces, the large Buddha footprint, a pretty terrace with a coffee shop and a beautiful view, a little area of lush artificial waterfall... Everything is beautiful !

The bravest visitors like myself will climb to the top of the mountain for a more dominant view.

Practical information about Wat Tham Pha Daen

No admission fee.
Open from 6.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There is a pickup service that take you from the main road to the temple for 20 THB per person but you can go straight up by car too. I do not know which local bus (songthaew) to take to come to the point where pick-up service starts (I came by car).
