SEE - Doi Inthanon

SEE

Doi Inthanon is the highest summit in the country. This mountain reaches 2,565 meters above the sea level and is the endpoint for the Himalayan mountain range which traverses Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Thailand. Within an hour drive of Chiang Mai town are numerous places that can provide that picture perfect postcard spot. Due to the difference of temperatures in high and low altitudes, the mountain supports more than one type of forest: the lower part of the mountain has plants that grow with light and heat whereas the top part of the mountain has plants that grow with humidity and cold. Rare plants grow in these forests including Sphagnum Moss and the Delavay Rhododendron.  

Doi Inthanon also houses some of the region’s most beautiful waterfalls. Some have calm pools where one can fully immerse oneself, while other are simply beautiful, shady spots to dip your toes. Most waterfalls can get thunderous in the wet season and caution should be exercised on slippery rocks. While you might not always get them all to yourself, the sight of relaxed, smiling locals enjoying the tranquil settings is an experience in itself.    

Famous waterfalls in Doi Inthanon include Mae Klang Waterfall (the first waterfall you’ll discover in the Doi Inthanon National Park and one of the most beautiful). This waterfall has several tiers with the main waterfall cascading around 25 meters down a 45-degree slope into a swimmable pool. Other beautiful waterfalls in the area are Mae Ya Waterfall (230 meters high), Sirithan waterfall, Siriphum waterfall (next to the Royal Agricultural Station) and Wachirathan waterfall.  

Doi Inthanon presents many other sights and activities for visitors to see and do, such as bird watching and hilltribe village visits. You can be sure to bring back beautiful memories from your trip to the top of Thailand.
