    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. There is no point camping area for those who want to sleep under the stars with a bathroom and a small shop to have it burnt. Corn sales have burnt sitting Pavilion is considered one that should come by itself.

    Although I did not stay in the park, the drive across the park is absolutely beautiful. I will go back for a stay in the park.

    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.
