The Ultimate Doi Inthanon Adventure
Chiang Mai – Doi Inthanon
Your guide and driver will meet you at the hotel for your Doi Inthanon Adventure. We will drive to Doi Inthanon National Park. Our first destination is the Mae Ya Waterfall. This is one of lesser visited waterfalls in the National Park as it is a bit out of the way. It is very pretty. The water is coming down on a broad rock formation. We continue further into the national park. Next up is the Sirithan Waterfall. Also this waterfall is often bypassed due to time constraints. We love this waterfall. It is only a short walk to the viewpoint. Next up is the spectacular Vachirathan Waterfall that is more popular. We continue to the summit of the highest mountain of Thailand. Near the summit we will hike the short but very pretty Angkha Nature Trail. Next Wwe will visit the two chedis that were erected in honor of his majesties King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit. We enjoy a late lunch near the Park Headquarters. We will check into our accommodation for tonight which is a lodge. You will have your private room with toilet. After having settled a bit we take off for the Pha Dok Siew Waterfall trail. We will do this at the end of the afternoon because there will be few other people on this trail. We walk down along this beautiful waterfall until we hit the trail that will bring us to the Karen Village Ban Mae Klang Luang. Here we will meet the Karen people and will enjoy a cup of Ban Mae Klang Luang coffee.
We retire to our overnight homestay and have dinner.
Doi Inthanon – Chiang Mai
This morning we will leave before daybreak to be on the trail before anyone else. This will allow us to enjoy the peace and serenity of Doi Inthanon National Park to the fullest and in as much privacy as possible. We will be accompanied by a local Hmong guide. The Hmong have been calling the Doi Inthanon their home for a long time. The trail is not difficult to find. At times we trek through cloud forest that sometimes opens to stunning views of the national park. Doi Inthanon is often called the Roof of Thailand. During this hike you will find out why, of course depending on the weather. After our hike we go for breakfast.
We will stop at the Hmong market where products of the Royal Project are for sale. We will visit the Royal Project site as well. You will learn why the Thai people really loved their King. We will take a different route back to Chiang Mai. It is scenic road that will take us to the Mae Wang valley where we will have lunch. After lunch it is time for an enjoyable trip by bamboo raft on the Mae Wang River.
After this we will drive back to Chiang Mai after two unforgettable days in one of the most beautiful national parks of Thailand. We will drop you off at your hotel. It is the end of your Ultimate Doi Inthanon Adventure.
