Pang Ung in Mae Hong Son

Pang Ung
Mae Hong Son

Pang Ung (Pang Oong) or "Pangtong2" is one of the Royal Initiative projects by HM Queen Sirikit for highland development. The place sometimes is referred to "Ruam Thai" on maps and signs. It is a Shan Minority Village where it has been developed with modern agricultural projects.

A large reservoir in Pang Ung is popular and attracts more and more visitors to come every year. Its lake view, pine leaves, beautiful mountain scenes, and hazy fog in the morning are a perfect combination for visitors who love to touch by natures. Surrounded by a verdant pine forest, the lake is beautiful in every season. Walking or Jogging along the lakeside are pleasant activities to do. There are camping areas and guesthouses around the lake. Pang Ung sometimes is called "Switzerland in Thailand". In the winter, sometimes the temperature drops to zero and create a thin film of ice covered flowers and plants.

This beautiful landscape is located 44 kilometers from Mae Hong Son's city. It takes about 2.5 hours if you drive from the city. Traveling to Pang Ung, recently Mae Hong Sorn province has revised its regulations for Pang Ung visitors.
