CHAIYAPHUM

Chaiyaphum, the City of Phraya Lae the Brave, features many historical monuments from its long and storied history, as well as spectacular natural beauty.

Highlight is Tat Ton National Park covers some parts of Phu Laen Kha mountain range. There are several beautiful waterfalls, but its namesake waterfall Namtok Tat Ton is the best. The water here cascades down wide rock plateaus, part of a breathtaking view, especially in the rainy season when there is plenty of water. In addition, Chaopho Tat Ton (Pu Duang) Shrine, honoring an ethnic Khmer holy man, is widely visited by locals who come to pay respect to the site four times a year. The park is also home to Pha Lang waterfall, which is 32 kilometers from the city on the Chaiyaphum-Nong Bua Daeng road, and Tat Fa waterfall, which is 25 kilometers from the city on the Chaiyaphum-Kaeng Khro road.
