Tucked away in the verdant wilderness of Mae Wang National Park in Northern Thailand lies Pha Chor, an awe-inspiring geological formation steeped in millennia of history and natural transformation.

Geology: Carved by the relentless forces of erosion over centuries, Pha Chor stands as a spectacular illustration of the Ping River’s sedimentary legacy. The striking cliffs and distinctive soil pillars draw geologists and explorers alike, drawn to its unique appearance reminiscent of an ancient city.
