Khun Nan National Park is located north of the park area.1,980 m high Doi Phu Kha, located within the parks perimeter, gives its name to the park. There are many caves in the park area. The park is named after Chompoo Phu Kha, a tree with attractive pink flower bunches, which together with Caryota gigas and Acer wilsonii, are rare species of plant which in Thailand can be found only in this park.

  • Another one is the DOI scenic mountains. The cool weather during the morning, recommended people to do or not during the long holidays are relatively quiet.

  • Spectacular mountain scenery. Inexpensive decent accommodation- take chalets phuka 106 - nice view. Sadly the only hiking trail is poorly marked in places and full of leeches. Visited in low season - getting meals was bit tricky as the kitchen closed at 5 and at any time of the day it takes up to 45 minutes to get a meal. No English information, you are on your own. perhaps your Google translate app can help a bit.
