It was a beautiful day when I went there. The sun was out and hot, but there was a very strong wind at the mountaintop which kept things cooled off. The panoramic views from the top the history behind the monument are worth the time it takes to drive up there.

These are from the mountains about mid-point between Phetchabun and Phitsanulok, probably about 60-90 minutes drive from either city. The first picture shows some mountains from an area near Tham Pha Ta Pon. The second is the visitor's office at Dao Duean Caves area. This area contains many caves, streams, hiking areas and sacred shrines and is supposed to be extremely popular during Song Khran.

The caves and mountains are really interesting to explore. It can be hot outside, but with the cool water coming out from inside the mountains and the breeze circulating, it is almost like natural air conditioning. Sturdy, ankle high hiking boots are strongly recommended, and the rocks can be muddy and slippery and there can be little creatures slithering about.
