The highest peak in Thailand and also a national park Doi Inthanon Mountain is famous for its variety of pristine species of flora and fauna. The cool climate year round at 2,565m above sea level means that the ecology is very different from that of the rest of Tropical Thailand and is home to a variety of bird species. The way up also boasts a number of superb waterfalls such as Mae Ya which cascades 100m down and Wachiratharn. You can also stop to visit hilltribe villages and markets along the way.
Visit the 2 royal chedis erected in honour of the King and Queen, perched on one side of the mountain sit almost divinely in the clouds and offer a great view of Mae Chaem and the valley below.
