Chaiyaphum (ชัยภูมิ) is the 20th province of the project. For these two nights in Chaiyaphum, I was teaming up with my friend Simon who I would be traveling with for 10 days.
The two main attractions near the city of Chaiyaphum are the Tat Ton waterfall and the Mo Hin Khao rock formations, known as the Thai “Stonehenges”.
The Tat Ton Waterfall (น้ำตกตาดโตน) is located in the National park of the same name about 20KM north of Chaiyaphum City. The river leading to the waterfall is shallow, allowing people to bath in, a good way to refresh yourself. As we were ready to leave the park, the rain started to pour aggressively. We then took refuge for an hour in a restaurant selling delicious local food.
Further west are the Thai Stonehenges, called Mo Hin Khao (มอหินขาว). This is were hills and curvy roads are starting to appear. This kind of scenery wasn’t expected to be seen in the “flat” northeastern region of Thailand. This came as a very pleasant surprise. We stopped in a cute village to do some drone shots. The stonehenge rocks are a group of 5 or so tall rocks standing strong. Quite a unusual sight.
We continued further on the road, among the pineapple plantations, to reach the Pha Hua Nak Viewpoint (จุดชมวิวผาหัวนาค) inside the Phu Lan Kha National Park (อุทยานแห่งชาติภูแลนคา). The viewpoint is a many kilometers long cliff that disappeared in the cloudy horizon. The view is breathtaking and not common for Thailand.
After taking a bunch of pictures, we headed back to our hotel under the threatening cloudy sky. By seeing all these pineapple farms, I couldn’t resist to buy one from the side of the road to eat later at the hotel.
We made it back to our awesome and cheap resort (สวนทิพย์รีสอร์ท) at 450 Baht without getting wet and ate that sweet and juicy pineapple in one go.
