  Pha Bong viewpoint

 

Thailand

Pha Bong viewpoint in the province of Mae Hong Son overlooks a valley in the area where wild elephants were once rounded up, tamed and ‘trained’ (son - สอน), and of which the etymology stands at the origin of this province's name.

 

From a sala, i.e. an open shelter or pavilion, visitors can take in the amazing views of the surroundings and the Samat River in the valley.
