Visiting the mountains of Manipruek

Sunrise over the mountains
We did stay at the lovely Siam Garden Bungalow resort and the next day we made a day trip to the beautiful mountain range behind Thung Chang (about 80 km north of Nan city). High into this mountain range is a beautiful valley where the ancestors of Hmong Hill Tribe people are living. In the old days the mountains were used for poppy plantations, nowadays it are vegetables. It is stunning beautiful and relatively untouched area on Nan province.


Our lunch is made by a Hmong lady
As it limestone mountains there are also many caves in this area. Also the deepest cave of Thailand. We did visit the entrance of the cave (difficult to find as there are no signs) but as there are no trails or lights we did not go inside.

I love the area and for sure I will be back here soon!
