Doi Inthanon National Park

 

 

DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK OVERVIEW


Home of Thailand's Highest mountain at 2,565 meters above sea level Doi Inthanon National Park covers an area of 1,005 square kilometers. The altitude of much of the park has given rise to a unique flora and fauna which isn't found in other parts of Thailand. As well as stunning natural beauty the park is home to some very spectacular waterfalls. Many hill tribe groups have made the national park their home. Doi Inthanon is great to visit anytime of year but the waterfalls are at their most spectacular May through to November. December to February is the best time to wild flowers and the best bird watching is from November to March

VISITING DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK

Visiting Doi Inthanon National Park from Chiang Mai
Doi Inthanon National park is situated about 60km south west of Chiang Mai via highway 108 then turning right in Chom Thong onto the 1009 The highest mountain Doi Inthanon is actually a further 50 Km drive into the Park. Using public transport to visit the Park is a bit limiting, although you can charter a songteaw in Chom tong to take you to the main attractions in the park. If you don't have your own transport then consider one of the organized tours which depart from Chiang Mai daily.

FURTHER POINTS OF INTEREST

Royal Pagodas
One of the best points to stop to take in the views over the Doi Inthanon National park can be found at the location of the twin Royal pagodas which were built by the Royal Thai Air Force in commemoration of the 60th birthday of Their Majesties The King and Queen in 1987 and 1992 respectively.

Angka Nature trail (Michaels trail)
Just a few meters below the summit car park you will find the start to the Ang Ka .natrure trail this 360m long elevated boarded walkway is well worth the effort as it will take you into the un spoilt forest and you will really be able to get a feel for the flora which exits at this altitude.

Royal Agricultural Research Station
A project initiated by his Majesty King Bhumipol, The Royal Agricultural research Station was initiated to help raise the living standards of local hill tribes who reside in the park (mainly Karen and Hmong). Of interest to the visitor would be a walk around the research greenhouses displaying research in progress of flowering plants , fruit trees and other marketable crops. From the grounds of the research station an impressive cascading waterfall can be viewed in the distance.

Thailand's Highest Peak
Almost at the top of the mountain the road will terminate at a car park from here it is a short 5 minute walk to Thailand's highest point and the true peak of Doi Inthanon. There is a large sign marking this posit and having your picture taken under this seems to be the most popular activity. The peak is still well forested so there are no views from this point, you will get better views a bit further down the mountain and the Royal Pagodas.

WaterFalls

Mae Ya Waterfall
Probably the most impressive waterfall in Doi Inthanon National park and missed by many visitors as it is not on the main highway which climbs to Doi Inthanon's peak. Popular with Thai picnickers who set up at the base of this impressive 260m falls

Vachiritharn Waterfall
One of the most visited waterfalls in Doi Inthanon is Vachiritharn waterfall. This 70m waterfall is just off the main highway which makes it way up Ito inthanon's peak and can be found near the 22km marker

Siritharn Waterfall
Again Siritharn waterfall can be found off the road which makes its way to Inthanon's peak and is well visited

Mae Klang Waterfall
Only 8km from the town of Chom Tong and just within the boundaries of Doi Inthanon national park. This impressive waterfall is very popular with Thai picnickers and is great place to take a dip in the cool cascading waters
