Wat Phra That Mae Yen has a peaceful, serene atmosphere, suitable for admiring a vast panoramic view of Amphoe Pai. The perfect time to appreciate the scenery is during the dawn, and the sunset. There has been no evidences on when Phra That was built. Within the temple area, there are only Phra Ubosot, and a 3-meter-high white bell-shaped chedi, with a round pedestal, and the outstanding umbrella-shaped top in Burmese style. Tourists usually come up to see the view, and worship the Reclining Buddha image before their back trips.
Normally, tourists usually climbed up to Wat Phra That in the evening in order to get a charming scenery of Amphoe Pai. From this point, visitors can get a whole view of the town. Since the temple is located not far from the town, the idea to cycle here is possible. As you arrive at Wat Phra That Mae Yen, you must climb up quite a long staircase. Anyway, don’t worry, since around the area, there are postcard shops, and restaurants for food and beverages where you can drop by to boost your energy before a trip back home.
Bathing here is supposed to have therapeutic properties, but you'll want to save it for a cool day. Sulphuric water bubbles out of these hot springs at temperatures of up to 80 degrees Celsius and simple baths have been created where the springs meet a stream which cools temperatures to bearable levels. A short, marked forest trail takes you through the compact national park more noticeable for its smells than its sights.
Somewhat optimistically described as Pai's answer to the Grand Canyon, it could more accurately be described as narrow red ridges with steep-sided valleys, both sides filled with pine and dipterocarp forests. The steep 50 m drop either side and stunning views over the surrounding countryside are impressive, but you'll need to be careful here. The path is extremely narrow in some places and requires a scramble in others. A set of steps up to a viewing platform provides the safest way to admire the scenery and the canyon makes the perfect spot for a sunset.
