    One tip:

    Behind this stuba is also a temple?

    Where is this stuba/temple located?

    And what this stuba involves?
  10. thailasse

    thailasse Ol'Timer

    Tip two.

    Here is a temple.

    Tip three.

    Same place but front side.

    Note: Stuba / temple located in high mountains.

    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.

    Note: In one context, this place is known as the old border temple.

    Nice to hear Ally.

    Heh Ally, sure but check first tip six.

    This mountain village located near stuba. Ban...

    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.
  18. thailasse

    thailasse Ol'Timer

    Auke, good idea but this stuba what i mean is not the same.

    Here is stuba behind the Golden Horse Tempele.

    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.
  21. thailasse

    thailasse Ol'Timer

    Auke, I understood what you mean. I put the images for comparison. :wink:

    Now gonna become one of the last tips this "mystery stuba" :wink:

    Tip eight.

    This mountain village located near stuba and this mountain village located near Burma border.

    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?
  23. thailasse

    thailasse Ol'Timer

    Is not this place. The region is already the correct, the Golden Triangle. :wink:

    Last tip....

    tip nine.

    This stuba / old border temple involves Buddhas's Lost Children documentary. (some photos from stubas, gallery 2 and 3)


    Buddha's Lost Children

    You can also watch Buddha's Lost Children videos from You Tube. Phra Khru Bah and novices repair this old border temple and little boy Boontam arrives to the temple.

    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:
