Walking at a moon-like landscape at Sao Din Na Noi

Sao Din Na Noi

Locally called "Hom Jom" this natural geological occurrence from soil erosion is located about 6km from Na Noi in Nan province. It is a bit difficult to find as following Thai tradition the signs at the last few km are missing. But worth the extra 6km side-trip to see this extraordinary and intriguing moon-like landscape of eroded sand pillars and cliffs made by wind & rain. Although it is also said to be made by the sea about 10.000 - 30.000 years ago. I would go for wind & rain. For more information see Tourism Thailand and TravelFish

Although there is an information center and toilets there is no coffee shop / restaurant or shop. So take your drink and food with you (buy it in Na Noi). For more photos click on the heading of this posting.
