Attraction Details :

This park is home to a gorgeous viewpoint on its namesake mountain between July and December, when Dok Khlongkhleng, or Indian Rhododendrons, display their deep violet petals whilst in full bloom. Visitors may also admire the unique scenic view at the summit of the mountain 1,700 meters high, observing as swathes of fog envelope Phayao province below. It is said that on full moon days, a white aura can be observed at its summit, hence its nickname, Fin Cha Bo, or angel shrine.

The summit of Phu Langka is not the only attraction – waterfalls such as Namtok Phu Langka, a million year-old stone terrace (Lan Hin Lan Pi), and even traces of communist hideouts are worth exploring as well. Accommodation and camping areas are available for guests.
