There is a path that takes you part-way down the cliff, for a different view-point.

Both shots are great, Ray!
Ray: Thank you, Elizabeth.

I like this National Park, and expect I'll revisit with Na sometime soon.

Wonderful pictures of the surrounding here, Ray. I also checked out yesterdays post. What a view. Worth the trip.
Ray: I don't get a lot of opportunities for panoramic views in Thailand, Astrid.
I can imagine the exhilaration of this spot, Ray!
Ray: I loved the place, Ginnie.

The whole thing must be a vast river valley
Ray: The Mekong is the World's 18th biggest [by discharge], which is about the same as The Mississippi, Chris...it is a big'un!
Quel point de vue !!!!
Magnifique..
Ray: Merci, Claudine.

What a great viewpoint. I like the fossilised remains seen in the second image smile
Ray: The four travellers have a combined age of nearly 280 years, Alan...that is 4 fossils cruising about the National Parks of East Thailand... smile

Mr Ray looks very serious as he snaps away. I note that he has taken very good care in protecting his lower legs from biting insects.
Ray: Mr Ray really should wear his reading glasses when using the toy camera in the smartphone, Chad...then he would know what he had in the frame... smile
It is a very beautiful place Ray
Ray: It is that, Bill. I should have used my real camera for these shots, but have become increasingly comfortable with the results from the toy camera in the smartphone.
Having read your reply yesterday about living in a flat area I can understand why suddenyl being in hilly regions comes as a pleasant surprise, it is certianly a fine looking valley down below.
Ray: The cliff is dramatic, and the floodplain looks vulnerable, Brian...wonderful place!

It is a great view. The one of you with your trusty 7D is even more intriguing smile
Ray: Ha Ha

I had the 7D with me on the trip, but didn't use it much at all...mainly just for the river cruise on the 4th day...these days it spends most time with a macro lens on it.
I love the top shot where we get a close view of the rocks, oh yes, and the second one with the fossil already mentioned. smile
Ray: Pha Taem is a lovely National Park, Mary, but it is a long way from Bangkok!

We fossils enjoy our short, cheap Tours.
it's a wonderful landscape well framed by the rocks Ray... and you look good in this shot....petersmile
Ray: I am using a few pics from friends Tim and Koen to get myself into this series, Peter.
Tremendous views, Ray!
Ray: Pha Taem is a lovely National Park, Tom, but it is a long way from Bangkok, and way more than a daytrip from my house!

i am pleased to see that amount of greenery spread in front, Ray.
Ray: The green is mainly quite tall trees on the Mekong Flood Plain, Ayush...even though it is near the end of the Dry season there is still enough water to keep the trees from shedding much foliage.
