Suan Hin Pha Ngam or Thailand’s Kunming is located at Ban Pha Ngam, Mu 10, Tambon Puan Phu. It is a limestone garden aged around 230-280 million years, occurring from the aggradation of beach deposits. Then, an uplift of the earth’s crust, together with millions of years of natural rot have made this mountain be strangely beautiful, similar to the stone garden in Kunming, the People’s Republic of China. Therefore, it was named Thailand’s

Kunming. Within the compound is also situated a tourist information centre. To admire

the nature, interested persons can contact an officer to conduct a tour around the stone

garden as a group of ten persons, costing 100 Baht per group. This is because of the

narrowness and labyrinthine path which visitors might be able to get lost. Interesting

travelling routes in the stone garden is Tham Thalu, mountains in strange animal shapes,

a viewpoint at the summit of Khao Pha Bong or the stone mountain with a hole in the

middle of its top. Each point is called differently.
