Once a year there is a festival held during the time that the Chompoo (pink) Khu Kha tree is in full bloom. The festival is to celebrate full blossom of the tree and honour the spirits that protect the tree. The shrine build next to the tree also honours the dynasty of  Phukha, the old rulers of Pua, the first capital of what would become the Nan Kingdom. Read everything about Accommodation, Food & Drinks and Things To Do in Bo Klua
