A Doi Suthep Sunset

Well, there actually isn’t a sunset visible from Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, but several people we met on the way up to the temple in the evening expected to see the sunset from here. It is not possible due to the location and the mountain and it’s trees. But spending the sunset up here in the temple is a very special moment. The light is awesome, as is the atmosphere! Most tourists will have gone, and the entrance staff will not let people go up to the temple after 6pm. So, when the sun sets it is mostly for people who want to attend the evening chanting in the temple and for people who want to enjoy this special moment and it’s atmosphere. The drive down from the mountain in the dark should however not be underestimated!
