Doi Inthanon is Thailand’s highest mountain at 2,565 metres above sea level.
A 90 minute drive from the city, it is home to about 3,000 Karen and Hmong hill tribe people, residing in some 30 villages over an area of 1,005 sq.km.
A short trek at Doi Ang Ka will reveal the spectacular panorama of mountains that will eventually become the Himalayas.
The reserve is of great interest of to trekkers and nature lovers with its unique eco system. Bird watchers especially will enjoy seeing up to 362 species. During December and February red and white rhododendrons bloom, as well as other plants, some not to be found anywhere else in Thailand.
When descending the mountain, we will see the Twin Royal Pagodas (Nobhametanindol and Nabhapolbhumsiri) which were built by the Thai Air Force on the auspicious occasion of King Bhumipol’s 60th birthday celebration (1987) and Queen Sirikit’s 60th birthday (1992). The beautiful gardens and panoramic views are a breathtaking sight.
On our return, if you wish, we can shop for some delicious local fresh and dried fruit, as well as other locally made products at the hill tribe markets before lunching at the Doi Inthanon Royal Project restaurant, surrounded by a vast green tropical wilderness.
At the end of our program, to complete your day, why not visit one the most beautiful water falls in Chiang Mai, the Vachiratarn waterfall.
