Phu Chi Fa (Thai: ภูชี้ฟ้า, pronounced [pʰūː t͡ɕʰíː fáː]), also Phu Chee Fah, is a mountain area and national forest park in Thailand. It is located at the northeastern end of the Phi Pan Nam Range, 12 km to the southwest of Doi Pha Tang at the eastern edge of Tap Tao in Thoeng District, Chiang Rai Province.

The cliff is part of an elevated area, the Doi Pha Mon sub-range, that rises near the border with Laos sloping towards the Mekong River. The highest point of the ridge is 1628 m high Doi Pha Mon.

With views over the surrounding mountains, it is one of the famous tourist attractions of the Thai highlands near Chiang Rai.[1] Tourists visit the mountain especially at dawn in order to catch a glimpse of the "sea of mist", the view of the fog-surrounded hills, with heights ranging between 1,200 and 1,600 m to the east of the mountain.[2]

The weather on Phu Chi Fa is cool, averaging around 20° C. It has three seasons: hot, rainy, and cool, influenced by the tropical monsoon.[3]


Phu Chi Fa is home to a number of mammals, include barking deer, wild boar, palm civets. Birds include canaries, pheasants, and magpies.
