If you are in the city of Chaing Khan a visit to Phu Tok Mountains is a must! The view from the top of the mountain over the valley and city is truly stunning. I was completely in awe watching the fog flow through the valley. You have to hire a driver and truck at the base of the mountain to take you to the top. The ride up the hill is a bit of an experience in an open backed truck but so worth it.
When you reach the top of the mountain you can walk around and explore the area. There is a gorgeous golden Buddha on the hillside. There are swings and benches so you can sit back and just watch the world go by.
The views over the valley and Mekong River into Laos are stunning.
Give yourself time to watch the sunrise over the mountain and see the sea of fog.
Every moment we were up on the top of the mountain it was truly breathtaking. We kept looking at each other in awe that we were experiencing such beauty in real life.
It was a moment that is hard to describe like many during my visit to Thailand. This country truly offers so many breathtaking opportunities and sites to see.
