About

Nicknamed “The Roof of Thailand”, this protected area has been the home of some of the world’s most enchanting specimens of flora and fauna, and the highest mountain top in the country. Although the national park is surrounded by all sorts of greenery, it is also known to be the destination where tourists can touch the sky.

Besides the lush greenery, Doi Inthanon has several waterfalls, an amazing view of the sunrise – which can be seen from the Doi Inthanon peak – and two royal pagodas. The latter was a commemoration dedicated to the king and queen’s 60th birthday anniversaries. 

Good to know

  • The elevation of the park ranges between 800 and 2,565meters, with an average temperature of 10-12°C. Bring cover ups and/or thick clothing if you get chilled easily.
  • To enjoy Doi Inthanon without any interruptions, avoid visiting during the peak summer months as a lot of locals come here to cool off.
  • Entrance fee: 300THB for adults, 150THB for children

How to get there

  • Book the Doi Inthanon National Park Tour for a tried and tested and enjoyable experience
  • Getting to Doi Inthanon National Park from Chiang Mai can be a bit of a challenge. For easy travel, it is always best to book a tour that will take care of the logistics. However, if you want to go on your own, you can take the red-colored songthaew that plies the route between Chiang Mai and Chom Thong. After you reach Chom Thong, hop on to another songthaew that travels between Chom Thon and the Doi Inthanon headquarters.
