Culminating at 2565 meters, Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand
so it is sometimes nicknamed the ''rooftop of Thailand''. The Doi Inthanon National Park covers an area of ??482 square kilometers and contains many waterfalls (Wachirathan waterfall, Mae Klang waterfall, Mae Pan waterfall ect ...). There is a wide variety of animal species especially birds and beautiful flowers but also mountain villages, crop fields including the beautiful rice field terraces in Baan Pa Pong Piang. Doi Inthanon is one of the most popular destinations in the province of Chiang Mai for treks. I recommend you to go on Ang Ka trail and its 360 meters bridge over a marsh.
Close to the top of the peak, there are two pagodas : Phra Mahathat Napha Methanidon and Phra Mahathat Naphaphon Bhumisiri built to commemorate the 5th cycle anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit. Installed on two neighboring peaks, the two pagodas house relics of Lord Buddha.
Doi Inthanon is located 58 kilometers west of Chiang Mai. Take some sweater when you go there, temperatures can be cold !
