Sky Pagodas

This spectacular mountain temple Wat Chalermprakiat or Pu Pha Dang Temple also called Sky Pagodas Temple Lampang is located in Lampang region. It is really worth a visit.

To get to the platform from where you can view the pagodas, you have to climb a lot of stairs. This is why there are not many foreign tourists.
