The Lovely Meditation Temple of Wat Pa Tam Wua / Mae Hong Son , On the way between Tham Lod (Lod cave) and the city of Mae Hong Son, there is a magical, mystical, pastoral place called Wat Pa Tam Wua – Forest Monastery: a center for studies of Buddhism, spirituality and vipassana (Buddhist meditation).
When I looked it up, I was unable to find a review by a traveler who visited there (as I have), but hardly any reviews by people who meditated there. I have no knowledge of the visiting policy on site, but thanks to my good friend Ethan, a resident of Mae Hong son who traveled with me, I learned of the hidden local gems, and so we arrived at this magical place and visited there.
We wondered around for an hour or so, while I took pictures and captured what I saw. It didn’t seem as though we bothered anyone, so I suppose that a small group visiting there shouldn’t be a problem – as long as the visitors keep quiet and respect the place.
As the website states – the monks speak Thai and English, and if you’d like to meditate – you can stay there without any cost. Of course – you shouldn’t treat it as a free hotel or resort, but rather come to engage in the spiritual experience.
As for myself, I was merely a visitor and yet I was taken by the mystical beauty of the place; surrounded by nature, towering mountains, several caves and waterfalls. The visit was a unique, moving experience.
My opinion: Temple of Wat Pa Tam Wua visiting the place was a unique, exceptional experience
