Wat Saphan Hin

Two kilometres to the west of the main park in the western zone, Wat Saphan Hin translates to "temple of the stone bridge", and was named after the raised stone walkway that rises from the ground to meet the large standing Buddha image perched on a hill some 300 metres high.

When walking up the stone bridge, surrounded by forest, it's easy to imagine ancient pilgrims doing the same thing in the same place.

Depending on what kind of shape you're in, it's a somewhat tiring walk up to the top, but once there you're rewarded with some lovely views of the historical park from above.

Don't forget to bring some water as no one sells it out this way.
