Doi Inthanon national park tour is a full day tour that takes you Thailand’s highest peak. It features some of the most beautiful natural sights in Thailand. There, you can visit two impressive waterfalls, a hill tribe farming village, and the stunning twin King and Queen Royal Pagodas. These mirrored buildings sit atop the mountain and are surrounded by manicured flower gardens with jaw-dropping views of the valley below. You can also enjoy a relaxing nature trail walk before reaching the highest point of Thailand. Day times temperatures can be surprisingly cold so do not forget a long sleeve jumper.
Near the top you will take the Angkha nature walk where you can walk amongst the unique flora and forest at this altitude. There are both Karen and Hmong villages in the bounds of Doi Inthanon and you will see a Karen village and those at the local market on the way down the mountain before making your way back to Chiang Mai.
While a vast majority of visitors come to the park to take in the views from the summit (accessible by car), the surrounding forests, waterfalls, stupas and nature trails make it one of Thailand’s most spectacular national parks. Birdwatchers flock to the park in hopes of spotting some of its 362 species of birds, while other visitors come to picnic and swim at Mae Klang Falls.
Doi Inthanon National Park is pleasant to visit all year, as its mild climate makes it cool even during the hot season. During winter or cold season, Doi Inthanon is a pleasant place to hike as the air is cool and fresh with great views of the valley and a different feeling from Chiang Mai or other smaller mountains. During raining season, the lush nature and blue sky makes the area just stunning. It is rarely raining the entire day, as there is more often a tropical downpour followed by sunshine again. Beautiful views and great color contrasts makes this the best season for avid photographers.
Experience Doi Inthanon National Park on this tour, ensure you come along with your walking shoes, a light raincoat or poncho especially during the rainy season, Hat and sunglasses and a nice Camera to capture amazing moments during this tour.
