Wat Phra That Doi Tung Viewpoint is somewhere that you need to visit if you are in Doi Tung and near the the Myanmar Border, north of Chiang Rai.
On the main road there was a temple. Then after driving up the hill there was a stop at the bottom of another hill.
Here there were steps going up to the top of another hill. Here the steps were lined with the traditional dragon and the bells.
After this long (and sometimes with debris) number of steps we came to the top, wow, but we were surrounded by more forest so not really a viewpoint - but the air was certainly fresh up here.
There were warnings and protection in the steps.
Looking back on the steps we could see more of the protection.
No sure what these animals were that protected the main Wat though?
This was the side of the Wat
these were the doors - closed -
there were more figures - a very peaceful place to visit - then back down all those steps.
