Rooting from Isan dialect meaning isolated mountain, this sandstone range can be seen from a distance. Consisting of two hills, Phu Tok Yai and Phu Thok Noi, the area is dense with woods and wild life animals. With its tranquil setting, Phra Achan Chuan Kunlachettho, a meditation master, established a meditation place here. Phu Tok Noi also takes on Wat Chetiya Khiri Wihan, a starting point of a walk up to Phu Tok via wooden bridge through the mountains. The bridge is compared to a path of virtue that leads men to their own emancipation. The bridge’s stairs are divided into seven sections with caves and rest areas along the way. To the north, a mountainous view of Phu Tok Yai can be seen. Please note that Phu Tok is closed on April 10-16.
