Pang Oung (ปางอุ๋ง) ปางอุ้ง จ.แม่ฮ่องสอน Mae Hong Son Thailand #SMSnotes


Pang Oung (ปางอุ๋ง)


Pang Ung, also spelled Pang Oung, is a tourist attraction in northern Thailand. Located in Mueang Mae Hong Son District, Mae Hong Son province. It is a project of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the King wishes to restore the forests and ecosystems around the Patong and Fang Pang Ung reservoirs.






If you travel to Mae Hong Son in the winter, visiting this place is a must! Make sure to arrive as early as 6 am for the spectacular view during rafting. The place is pretty safe, clean, and not too touristy. The staff is well trained and polite. There is a designated camp ground if you're into camping.
Highly recommended place to visit especially in the early morning during winter!


The views were amazing! It was fun playing and being guided by the dogs in the area. The geese on the lake looked magical. I wished I tried riding the bamboo boat.



Beautiful lake. Go there early morning (around 7am) to see the fog coming out of the water.
It is magic!
The road there is a bit hard, not broken path but steep.
Several local accomodation there so for sure you can fin food and a place to sleep plus the camping is an interesting option as well.



Amazing peaceful place to enjoy a day here, way better and worth coming than Baan Rak Thai. You can enjoy a bamboo rafting (150baht for a raft)ride here on the lake, watching swans swimming along. Accommodation and camps are available here but better book in advance.


We visited pang oung in late january, the mornings are really cold (12 deg when we were there), so bring a jacket. The bamboo boats start at 7am and cost 150baht each for 30mins. Max 2 pax per boat, just pay them in cash. The boats are near the public carpark but if you are going into the national park it’s additional 200baht for foreigners and 20baht for locals. Would recommend to just take the boat and take pictures if you’re not keen to hike or camp inside the national park
