Why Dane Pha Sandstone Canyon is special ?

There are three ceremonial plaques marking three prominent deceased individuals from the nearby town. As well, three places are carved into the side of the valley and contain some buddha statues.

What is this mysterious places, with its pink sandstone canyon, not exactly pink, but certainly not the normal brown? A day hike can be done to explore along either the bottom or along the top of the ridge. Be careful of spots wherein the water streams down into the valley, as it may be somewhat slippery.  Plans are in the works to build a new Wat onsite, as the old one fell into disrepair and was entirely abandoned. Off the beaten track, and certainly worth a wander.
