Doi Inthanon National Park, Chiangmai

Doi Inthanon is Thailand's highest mountain and towers 2,565 metres above sea level.  Travel 58 kms west of Chiang Mai via Highway 107, by regular coach to Amphoe Chom Thong and thence by minibus to the peak for a further distance of 48 kms.

Complex mountain ranges and a mild climate characterise an area with moist and dense summit forest which is the source of important tributaries of the Mae Ping River, one of northern Thailand's major waterways.  Various streams descend, forming beautiful waterfalls throughout the park.  These include the Siriphum, Vajirathan, Mae Pan, Mae Klang, and, the largest of all, Mae Ya waterfalls.  Meo and Karen hilltribes inhabit the park.

Visit the Doi Inthanon National Park is possible throughout the year.  The best period for viewing waterfalls is May through November.  The best period for viewing wild flowers is December through February.  The best period for ornithologists is November through March.

For accommodation, contact the national park office at Km 31.  Food are available at local shops at Km 31.
