Pathang Hill is a beautiful spot; super friendly, English speaking, owners and they’re very happy to welcome foreign guests so Pathang Hill gets out vote.

No, it isn’t within walking distance of Phu Chee Fah but yes, it is within a short walk of Prathu Siam and you can’t have both. The main advantage of Pathang Hill is that, since the owners do speak English, it’s a lot easier to organise some transport up here through them if you don’t already have some. They can telephone a driver for you who will take you to the Prathu Siam and Phu Chee Fah car-parks and wait while you climb before taking you back to the guesthouse for around 800 baht. Considering those without transport don’t have any choice this is a reasonable deal.

The resort is located just at the southern exit to the village and has a splendid restaurant with wooden deck looking out across the valley while rows of chalets are situated on the west facing slope below. When we visited during low season the restaurant was beer only but the excellent Pa Suk is just next door. If you give them advance warning they are happy to provide dinner though and a simple breakfast in the morning is part of the deal.

There are several short rows of chalets, some newer, some older, some with excellent balconies some less so but they all go for the same price so have a look and they’re happy for you to pick from whatever is available. There is a slight difference between single and double occupancy and prices do more than double during high season but we’ve seen worse in these parts. Interiors are clean and comfortable with decent bathrooms and WiFi throughout. Another major advantage is that there are no other resorts either side or below so you can admire their fantastic view without looking over the roofs of 10 other chalets. Unusually they did seem to have pretty much set rates for different periods.
