    Thirteen days and 3900km adventure trip is done in Northern Thailand.

    To the point,

    Who GT-Rider knows exactly where is this stuba located in Northern Thailand? and what this stuba involves?

    This response will know a reward reputation and good name. :wink:

    Marco does not respond. :wink:

    Rajate.

    Arh, not even close eh? Now I'm in Savannakhet & even further away.
    Some of the scenery in the background looks like around Doi Ang Khang / Doi Phahompok.
    So is it on the Arunothai - DAK road, or on the DAK - Nor Lae road.
    If it is Arunothai - DAK, then it is near the good general's old KMT camp / HQs.

    Just a wild guess but it looks like the area behind the Golden Horse Temple. I must admit that this stupa looks quite a bit bigger than from what I remember when I visited this place a few years ago.

    Hi Lasse,

    yes, I also thought that the stupa was smaller than the "mystery stupa". Once I saw the picture of the other stupa I knew that I was wrong with my assumption.

    Lasse, I'll give it one more try before being of on a trip for a week or two. Is it Phrathat Doi Chang Mup which is located very close to the Thai/Myanmar border near Phrathet Doi Tung?

    Thailasse you tease...

    This thread has become an Indiana Jones hunt for the lost stupa!
    If Auke is stumped what hope is there for the rest of us?

    Will the be a sequel and possibly even a prequel??

    Just from the clues and the photos, my guess is somewhere in the Nor Lae /Angkhan ridge area. Other than that, I don't have any idea. :cry:
