Khao Ploi Waen

Khao Ploi Waen is a hill located about four kilometres past Khai Nern Wong offering a scenic view of the surrounding area.

At the base of the hill lies a small active temple. Follow the path on the right until you come to the steep and rather uneven stairs leading to the summit.

Here there is a rundown Ceylonese chedi built during the reign of King Rama IV, which appears to be undergoing slow restoration. The walk can be a hot one, although the plentiful bougainvillea provide some shade.
