Doi Inthanon, Doi Inthanon National Park

4.4
#1 of 12 in Scenic Drive in Thailand
Head up Doi Inthanon, a mountain of great natural and cultural importance in Thailand. At 2,565 m (8,415 ft) above sea level, this is the highest point in the country, situated in a popular national park that bears its name. With splendid views from the top and an abundance of wildlife all around, the summit acts as a tribute to the Thai royal family, with chedis (monuments) dedicated to the king and queen keeping watch over the landscape. Conveniences abound across the park, particularly on the mountaintop, making it both a family-friendly site and an adventurer's playground. Explore the park and its famous peak on foot or by vehicle, alone or as part of a tour. Put Doi Inthanon into our Doi Inthanon National Park trip builder site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • You need not to forget the output to a height of over 2000 m n m there is a cold and need to take warmer clothes is not overlooking at the top, for a place in the forest is not the typical top. Views are the way around

  • Very picturesque (and highest) mountain. At the top of the road is an excellent road that you can climb on any car or on a bike. Several waterfalls, rivers with beautiful rapids. At the top (2.5 km) it is noticeably colder than at the bottom - it is desirable to stock up on warm things.
  • A long motorcycle ride from Chiangmai to the summit. I did it on a 125cc Yamaha. Quite a steep climb towards the summit but the bike made it. If you’re carrying a pillion rider you’ll need a bigger bike for sure. Two waterfalls to see along the way. Nice views just before the summit. March isn’t the best time to go there because of the burning and smoke. Still, it was a pleasant day trip.
  • A fair hike from town (75 min to 90 min). Very quite and peaceful albeit we arrived around 7am. Good views (not amazing) but low cloud cover shrouded a bit. One of those stops where you'd make the effort if you have excess time on your hands in CM. Not entirely sure if is worth the drive.
  • The 2 royal pagodas are quite overrated, we all agreed on my tour it was absolutely worthless visiting. Also the maintain peak was not so interesting to see (at least to international tourists). On the other hand nature in the park is really nice. Swimming in the waterfalls was the highlight of the trip. The local coffee is also really nice!! Give it a try
  • Nice area! nature trail and viewpoints are free but temple on the grounds is 40 baht per person i believe. nature trail is small (1-2 km round trip on a boardwalk) and you feel like you're in a very dense rainforest the whole time! Cloudy when we went so no views but the grounds are nice to walk around. small coffee shop and restrooms.
