Situated at Tambon Nam Suai, 24 kilometres from the city, Phu Pha Lom is a verdent park that covers over 1,000 rais of limestone hills and lush forest. Trekking along the trails leads you to several viewpoints where you soak up the scenic panorama.
Many locals believe that caves and wells found in the forest park, such as Phu Pha Lom, Laeo and Pha Bong caves and Nam Phut and Nam Sap wells are sacred places.
They believe the wells are the den of Naga, a mythical serpent, with an underground water passage connecting to the Mae Khong River. Camping spaces are also available.
