Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu

Tremendous views

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

This hilltop wat is better regarded for its splendid views over the surrounds rather than the actual building. Constructed in the early 19th century, the Burmese-style temple includes two chedis containing the ashes of a couple of well-regarded Shan monks. Get up here at dawn to see Mae Hong Son bathed in mist, while late afternoon affords tremendous views of the surrounds, including Burma in the distance -- haze allowing. You can reach the summit either by climbing the steep staircase running up from beside Wat Phra Non or come via road by motorbike/bicycle.
