Pha Chana Dai : The easternmost spot of Thailand

 

Thailand’s weather forecast always mention the name of Pha Chanadai when report about sunrise time. The easternmost spot of Thailand is actually embraced among the picturesque places.

The cliff of Pha Chanadai stands at 1,500 feet above sea level, in Dong Na Tham Forest which is part of Pha Taem National Park. Facing the east, Pha Chanadai is the place to be if you want to be the first in Thailand to watch the sun rise. The cliff is a viewpoint that overlooks Mekong which divides Thailand and Laos.

But nature lovers come to the cliff for morning scenery when fog fills up the valley. The first ray of sunshine penetrates through the white foam of fog and gradually illuminates the landscape.

Forest around Pha Chanadai feeds three waterfalls where you can enjoy. The very unique one is Sang Chan Waterfall which is also called Nam Tok Long Ru, as the stream runs through a hole on the rock ceiling.

At the end of rainy season, during October to November, the rock terrains in the park will be colored by variety of wild flower.

The main draw of the park itself is Pha Taem and Pha Kham. Two towering cliffs houses pre-historic wall paintings that stretch over 600 feet. These 300 paintings are over 3,000 years old. The paintings depict animals, hunting scenes, fishing method, human hands, and human figures.

This cool season, spend an impressive morning and get the first sun light of the day at Pha Chanadai is probably a remarkable blessing.

 

How to get there: Pha Taem National Park’s headquarters is located 15 miles north of Khong Chiam and 60 miles east of Ubon Ratchathani.
