Limestone Forest (Hin Boun) Viewpoint

The Limestone Forest Viewpoint, 10km west of Nahin on Route 8, gives a stunning view over this geological marvel. Stop here to look over the Limestone Forest and to find out how it was created by nature over millions of years. The crevasses, cliffs, peaks and gullies made by its geology have created special habitats and microclimates that protect the animals and plants adapted to live here. This inaccessible area has also been a refuge, over hundreds of years, for peoples during times of conflict. Visit the Viewpoint and discover the local legend of Phou Khi, the forest’s magic fugitive.
