Pha Chor is a 30-meter high sandy cliff formed naturally due to the uplifting of earth’s tectonic plate. Hundreds of years of natural erosion have transformed the original hill into a sheer cliff over the years. Geologists believe it to have been created when the Ping River changed its path, causing the earth to shift its plate.
The present-day structure bears a distinct similarity to a monolithic wall and has often been described as a Roman Pillar. This structure is also a part of the Mae Wong National Park and is managed by the Park administration. Numerous tourists visit the cliff by climbing down into the deep gorge to marvel at the fantastic features that remind them of the Grand Canyon of USA. The term has ignited the imagination of people causing it to be named as the Grand Canyon of Thailand as a result.
