Phae Mueang Phi Park

City of ghosts

What we say: 3 stars

Erosive forces over centuries have created this natural attraction about 18 kilometres outside town, which includes several mushroom-shaped boulders.

Nicknamed the Grand Canyon of Phrae, locals are still somewhat superstitious regarding the site, and its name essentially translates to City of Ghosts.

Though the area is a far cry from anything that can truly be described as a canyon, it does make for a nice morning or afternoon trip, and contains walking trails through the surrounding forests.

Do be aware that it can get quite hot during the middle of the day, and is most scenic in the morning or late afternoon.

More details
18km outside Phrae
How to get there: Drive north on the Phrae-Nan highway (101) for 12 kilometres, then turn right onto Highway 1134 for 6 kilometres. The site is well signposted. It can be a bit difficult and expensive to find a songthaew to take you, but if you can get enough people together or have enough cash, a ride can certainly be arranged.
