This temple is such a treat. With very little crowd compared to others (i.e. Doi Suthep), it is a real treat. Nestled in the jungley terrain of Chiang Mai mountains with easy access from the city, this place should be kept a secret.

The Monk's trail to Wat Pha Lat is very nice, about 45 mins depending on your pace. It was very hot, take enough water. The temple grounds were beautiful and the atmosphere was serene. The monk who made me coffee was very kind. Overall, amazing....More

This is one of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai. I reccomend hiking up from CMU and stopping here on the way to Doi Suthep.

We hired a scooter and rode up and had a great time. Plenty of food to eat as well. The final walk up the hill is well worth it, very peaceful location I would highly recommend a visit to this Wat

Wat Pha Lat is in the middle of the way to Doi Suthep. You can negotiate the price with a Song Taew driver. I took a Song Taew with 130 baht for round trip : Doi Suthep and Wat Pha Lat. Actually, I didn’t expect...More

Wat Phra Lat is a quiet mostly open air temple on Highway 1004 on the East face of Doi Suthep. The shrines and chedis are quite old but well kept. One of the surprises is a 140 foot waterfall thru the temple grounds.

I don't know. I'd hung up my hiking boots a long time ago. It's really hot and don't think you want to really hike the jungle only to get lost. The road up is great and there are Songtiao, taxi or motorcycles for hire to... More
