#1 of 110 in Parks in Chiang Mai Province
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.

  • It is a place called the top of Siam, Doi Inthanon, and it is famous for its beautiful nature. Every year, all the time is beautiful. In the rainy season, it will be green around the mountain.

  • Doi Inthanon is Thailand's tallest mountain at 2565 meters (about 8000 feet). The park includes 7 huge waterfalls including Thailand's two largest. There are camping areas with gear available, a Queen...  more »
  • One of the most amazing places in all of Thailand and a must if you pass through Chiang Mai (it is about a couple of hours from the city). The entire National Park is very nice, but the Twin Pagodas, the walk at the highest point of the Mountain and the experience of sleeping in the middle of the forest made it even better. Entry costs 300 BHT, a bit expensive by Thai standards, but it's totally worth it.

  • Lovely summit at around 2600m above sea level. Highest point is in a moisty forest with beautiful moss. The golden afternoon light was shining through the greens beautifully. Great spot to take some impressive pictures, printed one of them on a canvas and hung it at home.
  • We did the hike in about 2 hours. In the sunny dry weather it wasn’t challenging at all; the only delay was to take in the scenery. It’s predominantly walking up/down steps and is a circular route. As the other reviews say, you need to get a local guide to accompany you, but it is well worth it - they point out flowers and plants that we wouldn’t have otherwise seen. We did it around midday but I think it would probably be more interesting at either end of the day - the pictures our guide took from earlier that morning we spectacular.
  • If you search for the 2 towers, it is down the street km (Holy Relics..). Up here is a short path to the highest point of Thailand. My fascination as an Austrian guy was not overwhelming. There is a toilet without paper at the end and the store sells the toilet paper.
  • The enthralling hiking to the Doi Inthanon Peak is of 2 hours only. The Doi Inthanon mountain is approx 8415ft high from the sea level. The beauty of this hiking is mesmerizing. Nature here has a different look. The terrace waterfalls of this place are worth watching. While setting for the hike, the Thai market is visited that has an amazing collection of beautiful local things made by the people. While traveling, people go through the paddy fields and the amazing coffee plantations. The travelers get to taste the coffee made by the local tribal people of this place.
  • I rode a scooter there despite my short experience and did fine, there’s a scooter lane if you take the highway from Chiang Mai (avoid the road that takes you through the towns). still it took me 3 hours to get there and 3 to get back. It’s not that cold up there unless you go very early or late in the day a windbreaker is enough. If you like nature and want to do the waterfalls I think it’s worth to stay one night at one of the home stays on the way because there’s so much to see in that respect. If you’re there just for the twin pagodas and one waterfall then one day is enough. Beautiful sights, great oxygen. Very helpful staff at the visitors center.
