Thai Mountain Temple

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Christopher Bonn

This isolated Buddhist temple sits high on top of a mountain in the Golden Triangle. There were no monks or visitors when I went there, but the ground were well maintained. The isolation and beauty of this location gives the feel of being in a fantasy, far back in time.

Location: Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai Province, Thailand
