It's a short ride on a rental scooter to the start of the hike. It's not too hard or steep, and you are rewarded with such a peaceful place to rest and explore the temple area.

Wat Pha Lat can be hiked to up the Doi Suthep Pilgroms Trail or accessed by road on the way to Doi Suthep. It is pretty, and has a nice waterfall too.

Stopped here on the way back from Doi Suthep and am so glad we did! It is beautiful and not very crowded, when we went we were the only ones there. It is right on a waterfall and the views and absolutely stunning.

One of the many temples around Chiang Mai but the surrounding mountain and river with waterfalls - who wants to miss out on this beauty. Small tour group experience with a knowledgeable guide and lots of time to explore the beauty of the surroundings
