Wat Phra Non

Home to big reclining Buddha

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 1.5 stars

This small wat sits at the base of Doi Kong Mu and houses a 12m-long reclining Buddha. Dating back to 1875, it was cast on the request of the wife of the first governor of Mae Hong Son.

The two stone lions that lay together are thought to help provide safe passage for those paying homage to the Buddha relic up on the hill. Unless you hold a particular fascination for reclining Buddhas, this temple probably isn't worth going out of your way for. But if you're planning on walking to the summit of Doi Kong Mu anyway, it's along your route so you may as well swing past.
