TRIP XX: TRIPLE TREAT - UDON, UNSEEN BUENG KAN (76th Province) & KHON KAEN

This long weekend, I am going to tick off 4 places on my "Must Visit" list. You can join me to explore these UNSEEN Places. We will be going to 3 provinces - Udon Thani, Bueng Kan and Khon Kaen. However, our main focus is on the 76th province of Thailand - Bueng Kan. UNSEEN THAILAND for this trip are 1. Red Lotus Lake - Udon 2. Wat Phu Thok - Bueng Kan This temple is the starting point of the walkway up to the top of Phu Thok, via a wooden bridge winding around the steep mountain. This bridge is compared to a path of virtue that leads a righteous man to leave a world and enter into emancipation by their own efforts and determination. The bridge’s stairs to the mountain top are divided into 7 sections. These steps wind around the mountain which is covered by a dense dark forest with boulders and rocky grounds. 3. Tham Pra Waterfall - Bueng Kan On both sides of the falls are verdant thick forest, some parts is stone cliff with an abundant flower display. There are two statues of Buddha at the rim of a red sandstone cliff. Near the waterfall is the remarkable red sandstone cliff, the symbol of the northeast. From this level, walk up a little more and you will find a large waterfall with many big stones. 4. 3 Whale Rock - Bueng Kan Sandstone mountains, lush trees and strangely-shaped rock formations and various other geological wonders await. View from the top is to die for. 5.
