Another view of the hilltop Buddha- it's a long way up there and I did not go up

Another view of the hilltop Buddha- it's a long way up there and I did not go up

I am still at the base of the Phra That Mae Yen hilltop Buddha temple in Pai, north Thailand, but I am now at a slightly higher vantage point, on the raised platform upon which the Mae Hong Son temple is located. That temple has unfortunately been severely damaged by fire- we will get to that shortly. (see subsequent pictures later in this album). You can see the hilltop white Buddha clearly here. A similar white Buddha atop a hillside also exists in Phuket- I will probably travel there next month. (Pai, north Thailand, Oct. 2018)
