Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand, rising 2,565 meters above sea level. Doi Inthanon National Park has lots of amazing variation in its lush geography and forest.
It is home to rainforests, mixed forests, and pine forests. The weather is cool throughout the year, especially during the “winter” season when there is almost constant fog coverage all day and a stunning phenomenon called Mae Kha Ning or frost flower in the early morning.
There are many things for you to do in Doi Inthanon. You can Pay homage to Phra Mahathat Napamathanidol and Phra Mahathat Napaphol Bhumisiri (the Great Holy Relics Pagodas), savor the beauty of mystical morning winter mist, and explore the Mae Klang, Wachirathan, Siriphum, Mae Ya Waterfalls as well as Kew Mae Pan and Ang Ka nature trails.
While you are in the national park, you should also visit the Mae Klang Luang Rice Terraces, participate in bird and sky watching at the Thai National Observatory, one of the most advanced optical astronomy facilities in ASEAN. Moreover, take your time to explore the Royal Agricultural Station Inthanon Doi Inthanon, which has a small local market for you to buy local goods, souvenirs, and some local processed fruit.
