In April 2016 this exciting attraction opened: a glass sky walk for visitors to climb up to and enjoy the wonderful views over the Mekong and mountains from the u-shaped platform. But not just a walk on the sky walk gives you great views; there are plenty of spots from where you can view mekong river.
Although the glass bottom might scare some people away from walking over it, it is reasonable easy to do, also for people with fear of heights like myself. Another viewspot next to the skywalk is actually more challenging; you can jump on the rocks from where you have magnificient views.....but be carefull, as at many locations in Isan, there are no means of security like fences etc.... if you crawl to the end of the rocks you view a depth of many meters realising you would not survive a fall down.
The skywalk is located on the grounds of Wat Pha Tak Suea (a Buddhist temple) and can be visited from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm daily. Especially on weekends and holidays there are plenty of visitors. As is always the case when visiting temples in Thailand, wear respectful clothes.
The Sky walk is great to combine with visit of Wat Pha Phu Kon, Phu Phrabat Bua Bok Forrest park and/or Tham Din Pieng Cave and will take an entire day. Ask your host for combinations and details.
