A great Wat to visit if you want the feeling of an older and more peaceful Wat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A lovely jungle setting alongside this. Don’t go to feed the fish if you are scared of pigeons though!
I really enjoyed our trip to Wat Umong as it was so different to the rest of the temples around Chaing Mai. We started off by going to Doi Suthep then on the way back from that we stopped here. At this temple there is...More
LOcated on the west side of Chiang Mai and accessible off Soi Suthep or Canal Road, the temple grounds are forested with a lake, libraries, meditation areas, and a shrine inside a hill with a chedi on top of the hill.
This is a lovely temple and grounds a little off the beaten path. We visited this gem late in the afternoon on a weekday and there was not another person around. The 700 year old temple has been restored at least once and is actively...More
This temple is close to Chiang Mai city. It is very tranquil place. I realize many people go for meditation. It is another historic site in Chiang Mai.
Lots of Buddha statues kept inside a tunnel. There are intersections inside the tunnel. I can see...More
I visited this temple at around 2pm on a sunny Saturday, on my way back with the scooter from Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Very few western tourists and many locals. I highly recommend for you all to take time to stop by. Very peaceful...More
We decided to visit this temple based on Trip Advisor reccomendation and we were not disappointed. It is a very peaceful place. There are three tunnels that link togather to make a further temple. We are glad we took the time to visit.
First built in the 14-th century, abandoned and restored in1940s and reestablished in 1960s. Wat Umomg is a beautiful example of a Thai forest temple. Covering a large area it includes tunnels leading to underground shrines.

Hi! You can send them an email (you can find it on internet), or if you are already at Chiang Mai you can go there to the meditation center office and ask them about information. Usually there is plenty of room and you can start the day you want (you can arrive and start straight) and stay as long as you want, usually no more 3-4 weeks, accommodation and meals are provided for a 220 bahts a day fee and you have to wear white clothes (you can buy or rent them there). I recommend you that place for a meditation retreat, for me it was great.
