The Pai Canyon was an extraordinary view. I went up there for the sunset. The hike is not too challenging, and if you are feeling adventurous you can go on the skinny paths, but if you don't want to there is a place that has...More

Beautiful sunset, great company, good vibes. Very, very slippery and steep cliffs. Not a massive drop but enough to do damage for anyone careless enough. Keep yourself safe and this place free and open by bringing good shoes to climb a bit in. Very short...More

As somewhere to while away an hour, this small canyon is perfect - lovely views, but be prepared for some scrabbling down rocks to walk around the full loop.

This place is incredible! Being there I always wondered how nature can build things like that - but the Pai Canyon really looks like being from another planet. Definitely a must see!

Very busy with backpackers and very small. Not the 'grand' canyon I was expecting to see, but an interesting sight nonetheless. At least it's free!

This "canyon" is rock walls left with the soil surrounding it eroded away over the centuries. Be careful as the sandy surface can be slippery and a fall down the cliff likely deadly. During daytime it is extremely hot there.

We came in nice clothes for photos and basic hiking and regretted it. There was so much to explore but we were unwilling to ruin white clothes sliding around haha. We could easily have spent a whole day going around instead of just a few...More

You can visit this place at any time. There is no cost, but the best time is to watch the sum go down and take some great pics. The hike up the hill is short and easy. No climbing. Spectacular view.
