Pha Sapthong or Pha Kulap  It is a steep cliff with seepage full of water throughout the year where there is plenty of golden yellow lichen.


Namtok Huai Phai  This waterfall is dropping from a steep cliff with an approximate height of 30 metres. The water from this waterfall is also utilised to produce pipe water in Amphoe Phu Ruea.


Yot Phu Ruea  is the highest spot in the national park. Within its compound is a stone terrace and grass field mixed with pine forest comprising Pinus merkusii which is naturally grown and Kesiya pine which is planted.


Phra that Si Song Rak  ( seen right ) Its architecture is in the Lan Chang style. Phrathat, a stupa containing

the Buddha’s relics, is 19.19 metres high, 10.89 metres wide with a square base of 12 re dented corners.

Moreover, within the compound of the temple is enshrined a Buddha image canopied bya seven-headed Naga

in the Tibetan style of art.


Wat Neramit Wipatsana  ( seen right ) Both the Ubosot and Chedi are beautifully constructed of laterite.

The large Ubosot is interiorly decorated in resemblance to the great temples of Bangkok.Moreover, a

replica of Phra Phutthachinnarat is enshrined as the main image.


Phi Ta Khon Museum  It is an educational attraction for those interested in the Bun Luang and

Phi Ta Khon Festivals. Besides, there are an Ubosot reflecting the skills of local craftsmen, as well as, a replica of Phrathat Si Song Rak, including Bun Luang Festival and Phi Ta Khon are organised. Phi Ta Khon is the most famous festival that takes place in Loei Province in either June or July each year.


Wat Phon Chai, in Dan Sai, you will find the Dan Sai Folk Museum that goes into great detail about the tradition of the Phi Ta Khon. You will also find examples of the various masks and costumes worn during this annual festival. Read the report of my visit to the Phi Ta Khon Festival in 2011. The Phi Ta Khon costumes are made from rags and colourful pieces of cloth. Hung around their necks or tied around their waists are tins cans and wooden cow bells. These create a rattling sound as they move around and dance during the parades. Some of the people also carry a symbolic weapon made like an oversized penis. Although each of the Phi Ta Khon masks seem to be unique, they are all made using the same guidelines. Each mask has three parts: the hat, the face and the nose.
