Wat Tham Pha Plong View
This small forest temple perched on a hill not far from Wat Tha Chiang Dao is accessible by an ascent of 510 steps. Like that the number can be scary but it is more a walk with climbs and descents than a true hard ascension. Along the way, you will encounter many panels with Buddhist wisdom and advice written in Thai and English. Once you arrive up there, you will discover the cave of the temple and its many Buddha images and pictures of monks on the walls and a golden chedi with a nice view of the surrounding mountains.

This temple is a renowned meditation center that can accommodate up to 200 people (more information by calling 053 455 100).
