Doi Pui in Chiang Mai


Doi Pui
Chiang Mai

Doi Pui (1658 meteres above see level) is a part of Doi Suthep-Pui National Park.

Doi Pui Peak has a cold weather all the year. Bird watching is an activity here where more than 300 species of birds live. There's an area for tent camping that can accommodate up to 250 visitors.

4 Km from the National Park office, there is a Phu Ping Palace (Bhubing Palace), a winter palace for the royal family. The palace features flower gardens, beautiful landscape and buildings. It opens daily from 08:30 a.m. to 04:30 p.m. for visitors but will be closed during the royal visit: January - March. The admission fee is 50 Baht.

Within Doi Pui area, there's the Hmong Tribal Village. The village is about 4 kilometers away from Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. It offers an insight into how Thailand's tribes live. The villagers wear traditional Hmong clothes, sell traditional Hmong handicrafts, and live in traditional Hmong-style homes. A visit to the Tribal Village is often combined with a visit to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep and some of the waterfalls in the area, as well as a jaunt to the Hilltribes Museum.

How to get there: A number of tours are available to the Hmong Tribal Village and related destinations. However, if you want to get there alone, you will need to go to Doi Suthep then carry on to Phu Ping Palace, and then on to Doi Pui and Hmong Village.
