Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat วัดเฉลิมพระเกียรติ, 와트 샬롬 프라 끼, ワット・チャローム・プラキット
Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat
is one of Lampang Provinces’s best kept secrets. Many Thais in Lampang’s provincial capital have not even heard of this beautiful temple complex hidden away in the mountains. In fact, it is not even written on the official tourist maps making this temple a truly off the beaten path destination for adventurous travelers.
There is no public transportation. Coming from Lampang’s provincial capital, it is quite straightforward. Head up Highway 1035 until it there is a turnoff for the temple in a small village. The best way to find the turnoff is to use Google Maps.
From Chiang Mai, there are many ways. It should take about two to three hours to get to the temple.
At the base of the mountain, there is a car park area with several restaurants and coffee shops. Even though, there is a road mostly up to the top, you must park your car. To get to the top, you will need to purchase a return ticket for a songtaew ride up which includes admission to the temple. The price is 100 bhat, and it is the same for Thais and foreigners. The songtaew ride is about 10 minutes. The road is incredibly steep winding back and forth until reaching another parking lot and drop off point.
From the drop off point, it is another grueling 800 meter walk mostly by stairs to the top. The views are completely worth it though. At the summit are two main viewpoints each accessible by stairs. There is some free drinking water and a first aid kit up top. There are also several bells around that Thais are supposed to ring to tell the spirits in the area that they have done good deeds by coming to the temple and praying. Even if you’re not Buddhist.

► My best travel experience
-My great trip is calm. I do not like sharing tours because everything is busy and not private. So I designed my tour private that all visitors can absorb the beauty of sight and mind. I do not like talking much LOL. I know that most every tourist is studied the places that they are interested in before coming. Some people believe more books than the tour guide LOL. So I like to give you the basics and let you meet with your own eyes.
