Recently visited wot Umong this temple may not be as beautiful like many of the temples in Chiang Mai however, great history.
The Chet sit high above all other builds in the complex alone in a very peacefully area.
Loads to see a beautiful lake...More
This temple is less known and visited, but it is one of the oldest and it is very suggestive, evocative. There is a cave like building with a Buddha inside, and a beautiful park with sacred trees, and a lake.
I just finished a 3.5-day retreat here. While the schedule appears intense, we were truly on our own most of the time (as contact time with the monk ~instructor was pretty limited--probably less than two hours/day). Participants are expected to meditate on their own during...More
We went there on foot. There are many monks around and Thai people. You can see them pray and praise Buddha. They also offer a free museum and you can feed fish, turtles and lots of pigeons. Nice place & warm people, totally worth the...More
Wat Umong lies a few kilometers west of the old city at the foot of Doi Suthep. A large, sprawling compound backed by the Doi Suthep forest, its full name is Wat Umong Suan Puthatham and was set up centuries ago as a forest retreat....More
Very serene and relaxing. The vendors clearly cared for the temple as well. It is a hidden gem that I have missed on my other trips. With the forest cover it would be a good place to visit on a hot day.

Hi! You can send them an email (you can find it on internet), or if you are already at Chiang Mai you can go there to the meditation center office and ask them about information. Usually there is plenty of room and you can start the day you want (you can arrive and start straight) and stay as long as you want, usually no more 3-4 weeks, accommodation and meals are provided for a 220 bahts a day fee and you have to wear white clothes (you can buy or rent them there). I recommend you that place for a meditation retreat, for me it was great.
