Loi Krathong Festival

Doi Kong Mu at NightThe festival is held in November on the same day as the national festival Loi Krathong. Mae Hong Son's Loi Krathong is locally called Yi Peng, and takes place around Chong Kum pool at Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu. People bring their own "Krathong," a lotus-shaped basket traditionally made of banana leaves and stem containing flowers, a candle and incense, and release it into the pool. In addition to the ceremony, there is a wide variety of entertainment available.
