Beautiful, peaceful place with stunning scenery. Staff working there are very friendly and extremely helpful. Great place for walking and getting some exercise whilst admiring the surroundings. Would definitely recommend a visit to Pha Chor.

we stopped here on the way to the Doi Inthanon National Park. the canyon is tiny and the walk is over in less than 30 minutes as there is nothing to see along the way. do not waste your time to come here.
