Serene quiet temple with nice views. There are some new buildings surrounding the more ancient ones. Worth a trip but you need your own transport.

imo, the second best temple complex in the area; situated on a hilltop; the atmosphere is serene, there are bell gongs that you can exercise; all different tones; the inside of the temple itself is ok but not overly striking if yyou have seen many temples; you can park streetside and walk up the 330 steps (yes i counted them) or drive around the back/side to the top; nice view from the top; not over commercialized; need eat somewhere else tho; likely chiang saen city

Wat Phra That Chom Kitti is an ancient monument in the north of Thailand. It stands on the summit of Chom Kitti Hill, Wiang District, Chiang Saen.

You can reach the the temple via a stairway of 350 steps from the main road at the base of the mountain, or take the easy way and drive up.

It is a fairly tranquil setting, with great views of the Mekong River and Chiang Saen.

One of the better historic sites in the Golden Triangle area. The grounds are well kept and the temple is beautiful. A must see if in the area.

this golden pagoda on the small hill (Doi Noi) is one of the most important in Lanna, believed to be built more than a thousand years ago, tumbledown, abandoned and restored for many times, the last one was in 2007 earthquake when its top fell down, then being restored with the high technology of our present time, please take time to look at different parts of the pagoda from different restoration periods, by the way all is about the ‘Impermanence of Things’

Location: ****
easily accessible by bike, private car or taxi up to the top, or challenging yourself by walking up/down the 300+ step naga stairways from the base

Universal design: *
the place is not easily accessible for wheelchair person, many steps more than 10 cm. high from the street up the entrance door, no disabled parking, but an available disabled toilet

Cleanness: ***
the place is under construction and is acceptable clean, but the disabled toilet is quite dirty

Wat Phra That Chom Kitti, the forest hill temples can be reached by steep serpent staircases or by road. We went by road. The views of the surrounding area are spectacular from the hilltop.

This wat was under renovation at the time, but that, too, was interesting to see. There are 364 stairs up to the wat, so be warned. Fabulous and typical Buddhist design with good views.

This temple is worth the 308 step climb (you can drive) as you feel you're going to the sky and leaving the world behind. The stuppa is four sided each with it's own message, while the temple proper is unusual. See it to know why. Then the icing on the cake is the raised view over the Khong River to Laos. People circumnavigate Chiang Saen for the Golden Triangle. Mistake.

having lived in chiang saen for years i can say this temple is number 2 in the area; temple is nicer than most and the top of the hill is like a park; quiet, pretty; not overcrowded or over commercialized ; worth a visit

This Temple had very wonderful surrounding. our Thai friend explained for us that the top of the Dome had been from real gold but it had been fallen and now it was shown in the glass case at there and now it is just in golden color.
It was Very beautiful Temple.
