Khao Kho, Thailand Mist Viewpoints

One of the highlights for Khao Kho, Thailand trip was its beautiful scenery. To stay and see the mist floating just beneath or in front of you it is just magical. Originally I thought we could only see it in Hokkaido, Japan but this trip has surprised me in many ways. So we have compiled a list of Khao Kho viewing points for your trip – there are both known and hidden locations for those who are planning your trip!

To plan a Khao Kho trip, please remember that the view is not for all-season – it only happened during early November till early February. It is one of the beautiful seasons to travel to Thailand, it is dry and cool so it is easy for travel. Even though it is supposed to be cooling but never underestimate the sun! As it is located high in the mountains – at least 1000ft, the UV light is very strong, you are easily tanned in no time. But the morning and evening breeze is a charm!

Khao Kho Post Office

You never knew behind that pretty post office is a sea of beautiful mist. You will think that you are in heaven. Khao Kho post office is another famous viewpoint at Khao Kho, where you can see the panoramic view of the sea of clouds in the morning. The best viewing point we have seen in Khao Kho so far. It is less commercialized but the view is equally stunning.

This place is a popular campsite among the locals and maybe full during the peak season, but most tourists who are only after the sunrise and sea of clouds will be flocking primarily to Phu Thap Boek. Rent a tent there for a 50 Thai baht.

Khao Kho Sea Viewing Point

Although it can be a busy tourist attraction it is also one of the best fog viewing areas. You could also see a small market on the opposite side, selling snack food and souvenir.
