View far into Laos and the Mekong river
Kok Gnew Mountain is located where the Mekong River first meets the Isaan region of northeast. A second river from Laos called Maenam Huang ends by converging with the Mekong to produce a two-colored stream of water in the river; one darker than the other. The Maenam Huang is a natural border between Thailand and Laos. The Mekong flews full in Laos and does not be the border line between Thailand and Laos for about 550 km.
From the top of the mountain it was a superb view of the river below and sunsets.
