Feel the difference in Pai - the valley of diversity. Only 135 kilometres from Chiang Mai and at 600 metres above sea level, the Pai Valley nestles amid cool chilly mist, well shielded from the bustling world. Pai is keen to impress you with the colourful traditions of the residing ethnic minorities and atmospheric scenery that really will take your breath.
Nam Hu Temple
About 3 kilometres from Pai Market contain a sacred Chiang Saen Buddha image, 24 inches wide at the base and 30 inches high. The image’s topknot can be opened and contained holy water, revered by local folk.
Mae Yen Temple
Mae Yen temple is located halfway up a mountain and once you have climbed the 350 steps to get there the views over the valley are tremendous, covering a radius of around 10 kilometres. There is an interesting old chedi at the temple and also murals that were painted by a local artist about the previous lives of the Buddha.
