Relax and take in the beautiful Himalayan cherry blossoms over the winter months, visit fields of flower such as tulips, lily, cauliflowers, orchid, peach flower, and they also plant fruit trees such as macadamia nut, peach, plum, tea, sweet potato, guava and Arabica coffee.
Khun Wang Royal Agricultural Research Center is the research center for the farmers in the surrounding area of Doi Inthanon National park.
The country’s highest peak, Doi Inthanon in Chiang Mai, has many charms hidden in the embrace of its remote valley.
The road leading to the summit is always packed with travellers, most of whom are just content scaling the 2,500-metre high peak and trekking back downhill the same day, perhaps not aware that there are a few quiet, interesting corners in the vicinity waiting to be explored, for example, royally-sponsored agricultural research stations that support villagers in growing colourful flowers, temperate fruit and organic vegetable.
One of them is Royal Project Inthanon, nestled 16 kilometres from the Hmong village of Khun Klang that wows visitors with its assortment of fruit plantations, flower gardens and a delicious meal of rainbow trout where the fish sourced fresh from a pond in its compound.
