It rises out of flat farm country and juts up to a spectacular height. It’s enormous! There are other mountains nearby but they are part of a line of mountains, and this one is all alone. I found a place along a dirt road where I can get the whole mountain in one shot. There is a natural hot springs nearby, where we relaxed along with other Thai people. Families arriving on one motor scooter. Wipa made sure I was properly dressed. No public nudity for Thais!
It’s about fifty miles north of Chiang Mai. A long haul for a scooter, but worth it. We spent the night and came back after I got some morning light shots.
