  • The White Bridge

The bridge is about 9.25 kilometres away from the national park. It’s located just between Khun Tan Train Station and Ta Chompoo Train Station. It’s a good place for those who love photography. The scenery there is very historic and beautiful. The white bridge looks so good in the middle of mountains. Ordinarily, the bridge is the railway over Mae Ta Waterway.

  • Khun Tan Railway Tunnel

This is another tour off the beaten track, with lovely country roads, little traffic, picturesque countryside and endless rice fields. Both, the Khun Tan national park plus the sleepy and idyllic Khun Tan railway station and its long tunnel attract only a very few visitors.
