The rainy season is generally not the best time of year to visit destinations in this part of the world. But Phu Soi Dao is a notable exception. That\'s because when the monsoon is at its height this lush mountaintop meadow dotted with pine trees becomes a riot of colour when the charming ngon nak (Murdannia giganteum) and many other species of wild flowering plants put forth their blossoms.
It\'s a 6.5km hike to this site which is 1,633m above sea level. Porters are available at the foot of the mountain.
