|In Sunday, July 17, 2022 have international group from Pattaya for a two-day excursion "Above Clouds" to Khao Kho National Park.|
A two-day adventure excursion to the high-mountainous Khao Kho National Park in the north of Thailand. With a visit and relaxation at the hot springs.
The highlight of "Above Clouds" tour program is the Glass Mountain and the world-famous Temple on Glass Mountain, or Wat Phrathat Pha Sorn Kaew. Since 2018th, according to the authoritative opinion of Thailand Tourism Association, this temple has been the most beautiful and unusual in Thailand. Previously, the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in the province of Chiang Rai, was considered the most beautiful Thai temple.
Peacocks walk around the temple territory. The temple is decorated with a mosaic of porcelain ware donated by the Chinese diaspora of Thailand to King Rama IX.
Every morning at the Temple on Glass Mountain you can admire the natural phenomenon - "Sea of Clouds". And in the evening, illumination and a light show are turned on. The temple was built with donations from Dhammakaya - the youngest and perhaps the richest neo-Buddhist sect in the world.
There are hundreds of hotels, resorts, campsites scattered around Glass Mountain.
Nearby is one of the most popular national parks among residents and guests of Thailand - Khao Kho, a favorite vacation spot for residents of Bangkok. In winter, Thai cherry blossoms are incredibly beautiful here, and locals grow delicious strawberry on the hillsides of Khao Kho park.
In Khao Kho, on the top of mountains, there is the Royal Residence with an alpine park of flowers and a unique grove of Swiss pines, specially brought here from the Alps. And the inhabitants of the Kingdom lovingly call the local waterfall Sri Dit as "Thai Niagara". When the waterfall is full of water, it is incredibly beautiful.
Near the temple there is a rather unusual institution for Thailand - a cafe with dishes, drinks made from marijuana. The veranda of this unusual cafe offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The first official cafe in the Kingdom of Thailand with marijuana, began selling dishes with this plant in 2020th. All certificates and licenses are! The restaurant's signature dish is Tom Yum soup with hemp leaves!
Since 2021th, we have added a visit to the healing mineral hot radon springs to our tour program.
