Mae Wang National Park trekking area
Location of the Mae Wang National Park
The Mae Wang national park is about 45 km southwest of Chiang Mai. It takes about one hour and 15 minutes drive.
Mae Wang National Park consists of the mountainous Tanonthongchai hill range that that lies 400-1,909 metres above mean sea level. Other mountains are the main sources of three streamlines: Nam Maejam, Nam Maewang and Nam Maeteun tributaries of Mae Ping River. It borders Doi Inthanon National Park.
Challenging trekking possible but also easier treks. It’s quite a flexible area. We offer several treks in this area. The area gets many visitors due to its proximity to Chiang Mai and the abundance of activities. During trekking, we usually meet other trekkers, but once you go further into the forest, you meet hardly anyone. We are surveying more programs.
There are several elephant camps in this area that offer elephant riding and mahout courses.
Rubber boat (white water) and bamboo rafting are possible on the Wang River (Mae Wang)
There are village of the Karen and Hmong tribes. A couple of communities are heavily visited, and we avoid these. It is still possible to find quiet places.
Doi Pha Tang is about 1,909 meters above sea level. Since it is the part of Doi Inthanon mountain range, the weather is cool throughout the year.
There many streams that come from the mountains and feed the Wang River. Lots of waterfalls in this area, amongst others the Khun Puay, Pra Duk Daeng, Phong Noy, and Phong Samid, Mae Sapok Falls.
There are several royal projects in this area, amongst others in Mae Sapok, Khun Wang and Huay Khao Lip.
