Doi Inthanon National Park in Chiang Mai


Doi Inthanon National Park
Chiang Mai

At 8,415 feet above sea level Doi Inthanon is Thailand's highest mountain. It is a premium site for scenery and offers visitors forests, bird life and waterfalls. During the winter season the summit of Doi Inthanon is usually cool and dry, but over recent years temperatures have fallen lower and lower. You can now on very rare occasions experience temperatures below freezing point.

The area is renowned for mist when temperatures decline and images of the mountain's hazy beauty have become somewhat iconic. Two large pagodas built for the current King and Queen of Thailand are situated on the mountain's summit.

Doi Inthanon Forest has been established as a National Park. A trip to the mountain is often combined with a trip to Mae Klang, Wachiratan and Siriphum Waterfalls. With over 400 varieties of birds it is also a key destination for bird watching.

Details: The various sites on and around Doi Inthanon cost a range of fees.

How to get there: Given the scale of the mountain, joining one of the many tours organized from the city might prove the best approach. Alternatively, take a bus to Chom Thong from the Chiang Mai Gate (south of the city) and then take a bus Mae Klang Waterfall and then another bus to the mountain
