A trip to Dan Sai

While traveling to Dan Sai we passed Nam Nao National Park and we stopped at the view-point & jungle market. From here you have a great view over the green mountain range of Nam Nao. Dan Sai is a village surrounded by mountains and famous for its yearly PhiTakon festival. We did visit the "Wat Neramit Wipattasana" meditation temple and after that the oldest chedi from Dan Sai.

The symbol of Dan Sai is the chedi at Phra That Si Song Rak, which was built in 1560 by King Maha Chakrapat of Ayutthaya and King Chai Chetha of Lan Xang as a symbol of friendship between the Siamese and Lao kingdoms.
