Wat Umong – the one with the tunnels…

On the Western side of Chiang Mai is Wat Umong, set in the foothills of Doi Suthep and in heavily wooded land. Originally built as a quiet retreat away from the city it is still a peaceful place – tho’ no longer remote.
The main Cheddi sits on top of a huge structure that is riddled with tunnels – built in 1297.
