  1. Wow, small world. We were just here in the last couple weeks! We stayed at Chiang Dao Nest nearby and hiked up to this beautiful monastery. My husband wasn’t able to sleep one night, so he got up and took a walk down the road at about 3am and heard the monks chanting their prayers from the monastery up at the top of the valley. It was a beautiful moment for him.
