Thailand’s Floating Pagodas
Thailand’s Floating Pagodas is sitting on mountaintop in a non-hunting area of Lampang. Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn or generally known as the Floating Pagodas were built upon faith of the locals and Buddhist monks in the area taking 10 years to finish. The Buddha’s footprints were also said to have been found and enshrined on the peak.
A trip of adventure and culture, visitors need to hike for 1 kilometer including taking 300 iron steps to reach the white pagodas rising 815 meters above sea level.
Having rest stops along the way, the journey isn’t that exhausting. Sit down, rest for a while and take in the view of Chae Hom’s beautiful flat terrain that exudes fresh air and greenery.
Once you arrive, you’ll find your inner peace here together with a quiet, calming environment perfect for meditating.
