If you want to take pride in watching Thailand’s earliest sunrise, Pha Taem is the place to go since it is is situated in the easternmost part of the country. It is located at a steep cliff where you can see the Mekong River, a natural border between Lao PDR and Thailand that runs parallel with the cliff. If you’re after the sea of mist, the best times to visit would be the late rainy season. Pha Team is also home to prehistoric paintings that date back 3,000 years, which you can access through a 500-meter pathway from the cliffs.

If you are planning to visit Thailand’s highest point, you can get in touch with the Visitor’s Centre of Doi Inthanon National Park.

Since visiting these spots involves a lot of risks, it is important to take note of some safety precautions. First, it is important to take note of the route so you can also prepare physically. Take pictures with caution since most viewpoints are situated on high mountains and cliffs.

You should also make sure that you’re wearing the right gear, including shoes with studded slips, raincoats, umbrellas, and hats. The best time to catch the sea of mist is often at 6:00AM so be sure to have a flashlight when you’re hiking at dawn.

By creating memories on any one of these mountaintops, you’re sure to create one of the most unforgettable and picture-perfect #THAImazing stories you can ever have.
