tour description

Doi Inthanon is Thailand's highest mountain and towers 2,565 meters above sea level. Complex mountain ranges and a mild climate characterize an area with moist and dense summit forest which is the source of important tributaries of the Mae Ping River, one of northern Thailand's major waterways. Various streams descend, forming beautiful waterfalls throughout the park. Hmong and Karen hill-tribes inhabit the park. Visiting the Doi Inthanon National Park is possible throughout the year. The best period for viewing waterfalls is May through November. The best period for viewing wild flowers is December through February. The best period for ornithologists is November through March. The drive to the summit offers some fine views, especially during November and December, before the dry season haze has become well established. On your visit to the summit stupa containing the remains of King Inthawidhayanon, be sure to read the English translation on the back of the marble plaque nearby. Photographing any part of the radar station is forbidden, but visitors may take pictures freely of any other subject. Visit Vachirathan Waterfalls, which are reached by a short, easy trail from the parking area. Vachirathan waters tumble down granite escarpment, creating a misty veil of great beauty. On our return trip, we will stop at a hill-tribe village and the small town of Chomthong, famous among Thai Buddhists for its temple: Wat Phrathat Chomthong. Spend time admiring the golden stupa and the architecture of the ancient viharn (the main building housing the Buddha statues).
