A good energetic walk, especially if you've been slobbing about elsewhere! Wonderful views of Mae Hon Son town and surrounding magnificent mountains, looking towards nearby Burma. The temple complex is interesting, if not outstanding, though you can float a small boat with a candle in...More

You should see this if staying in Pai. The 300 plus steps take you to an amazing white Buddha. It was so peaceful at the top with some pretty amazing views below.

I rented a motor bike and drove the short distance to the top (5 minutes) on good quality roads. The temples are modest and the view is beautiful. A good stop that is quick and very close to the centre of town.

Towering above MHS town, you have beautiful views on the town and into the surrounding mountains. There's a winding road up and plenty of parking and shops.

This probably has one of the best sunsets in the area. The sun comes behind the mountains and you can see into the valley.

Take the windy road up the hillside for a great view over Mae Hong Song from the top. Assuming you have come here via the Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Song loop drive, the you can buy your Done 1864 Curves teeshirt here to celebrate.
