Couples challenged to prove love by walking up Phu Kradueng
The Phu Kradueng National Park chief on Monday challenged couples to prove their love is genuine by walking together up Phu Kradueng mountaintop to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
The popular tourist destination has no road access and visitors must hike up a path to reach the mountaintop, which is 1,288 metres high.
Phu Kradueng park chief Sombat Pimprasit said the park and the Tourism Authority of Thailand were jointly holding the activity to mark the day of love.
He said couples were welcome to register to participate in the activity at the tourist service centre at the base of the mountain on February 13. Then, they will walk the path together to the mountaintop, where they will spend the night.
The couples will be woken up to enjoy the first sunrise on Valentine’s Day morning at the Nok An Cliff and will together give alms to monks.
After the rite with the monks, a traditional bai sri su kwan rite will be performed to bless their married life, the park chief added.
