Phae Muang Phi (Thai: แพะเมืองผี) is a place with original rock formations in the Phi Pan Nam Range, Thailand. It is located about 8 km kilometres northeast of Phrae town in Mueang Phrae District, Phrae Province.

Named after the local ghosts (ผี), the zone of Phae Mueang Phi includes mushroom rocks and distinctive pillars shaped by natural erosive action.[1]
