Hike through Pai Canyon

Rate this Adventure Thailand Pai Canyon

Added by Kyle Wenzel

Pai Canyon is an amazing natural wonder with stunning 360 degree views and nature trails that range in difficulty from easy to extremely challenging. Bring a solid pair of hiking shoes for this one and enjoy the views!

Pai Canyon is located off highway 1095 just south of Pai, Thailand. When you first arrive you will ascend a 300 ft stairway to the first viewing area that includes a climbable lookout tower. Beyond that you will see a horizon of elevated narrow canyon paths some no more than 1ft wide with 30 meter cliffs on each side, to say hiking these trails is a thrill, is an understatement. If your ready, continue on, the first obstacle to get to the trails will test your abilities requiring use of all 4 limbs to get down to trails below.

The best times to hike are sunrise and sunset; you can get stunning views as well as enjoy lower temps during your 2-3 hour hike through Pai Canyon. Be sure to hike carefully as some of the trails can get a bit sketchy, but a level head and good hiking shoes will take you through the canyon without any problems. Don't forget to pack your camera for the stunning views and some extra water as there are no concessions throughout the trails. Tread lightly and enjoy your adventure!

Pack List

  • A good pair of hiking shoes
