Glass Mountain - overview
World famous temple on the Glass Mountain Wat Phrathat Pha Sorn Kaew.
Since 2018, according to the authoritative opinion of TAT, this temple is the most beautiful and unusual in the Kingdom of Thailand.
Previously, the most beautiful Thai temple was the White Temple of Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Rai province.
Peacocks are walking on the territory of the temple.
The temple is decorated with a mosaic of pieces of porcelain donated by the Chinese diaspora in Thailand to King Rama IX.
Every morning at the temple you can admire a natural phenomenon - "The Sea of Clouds". And in the evening, the illumination and light show are turned on.
The temple is built on offerings from the youngest and possibly richest neo-Buddhist sect in the world, the Dhammakaya.
There are hundreds of hotels, resorts, campgrounds and glamping sites scattered around Glass Mountain.
Nearby is one of the most popular among residents and guests of Thailand - Khao Kho National Park, a favorite vacation spot for Bangkok residents.
In winter, Thai sakura blooms incredibly beautifully here, and locals grow delicious strawberries on the slopes of the park's hills.
In Khao Kho, on the top of one of the mountains, there is a royal residence, with an alpine park of flowers and a unique grove of Swiss pines, specially brought here from the Alps.
And the local waterfall Sri Dit is fondly called by the inhabitants of the Kingdom - "Thai Niagara", when it is deep, it is incredibly beautiful.
Near the temple there is a rather unusual institution for Thailand - a cafe with dishes and drinks from marijuana. The cafe's veranda offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
The first official cafe in the Kingdom of Thailand with marijuana, began selling dishes with this plant back in 2020.
All certificates and licenses are available.
The house's signature dish is Tom Yam with hemp leaves!
Khao Kho Park and cafes can be visited during the author's two-day excursion Above the Clouds (or Siam Clouds), which is regularly held in Russian and English from Pattaya and Bangkok.
