It's quite a long flight of stairs up- I wasn't quite inclined

It's quite a long flight of stairs up- I wasn't quite inclined

It's quite a long flight of stairs up to the big Buddha at Phra That Mae Yen in Pai, north Thailand. I was not inclined to climb all the way there- I am not in my prime any more- but a lone tourist coming down should give you an idea or scale. From the trail head- where I am standing now- visitors can choose to climb up this Naga staircase which is all of 353 step all the way to the top. There are coffee shops and restaurants at the foot of the naga stairs (where I am standing now) for a bit of sustenance on your way up. . (Pai, north Thailand, Oct. 2018)
