Doi Inthanon is a must place to visit if you are going to Chiang Mai. On this tour you can cool off on Thailand’s highest peak while taking in the beautiful scenic Doi Inthanon National Park.
Located in Chiang Mai Province, Inthanon National Park encompasses the highest mountain In Thailand, Doi Inthanon, as well as several lesser summits. The doi (mountain) is largely a granite batholith intruding a southerly extension of the Shan Hills range and forming the divide between the Nam Mae Ping river to the east and the Nam Mae Chaem river to the west. Lower elevations in the most easterly pant of the park are limestone formations and contain a number of caves.
A winding route to the top of the mountain passes terraced rice paddies and small villages, and also provides some good wildlife-spotting opportunities along the way – barking deer, macaques, flying squirrels and rare Asiatic black bears live among the mountains.
Today, the national park and the summit of Doi Inthanon, with an elevation of 2,565 m, is a highly popular tourist spot in north Thailand among foreigners as well as locals.
