See the beautiful scenic view and lush green nature forest area along the mountainous road up—around 44 kilometres up the top. You can see the highest peak of Thailand with the stupa of King Inthawitchayanon, the last King of the Lanna Kingdom before we became Siam and Thailand later on. The King Once had a chance to visit this mountain named “Doi AngKa” ( The peak of the crows’ pound) and liked the place so much that he asked his daughter, Chao Dararassamee, who became the lady consort of King Rama 5th of Thailand at that time. He wished his ashes to be placed up at the mountain’s peak. Soon after he passed away, the mountain’s name changed to “Doi Inthanont National Park” since then.

At the peak stand the stupa of the King among the cool climate in summer and cold in Winter. In this place, not only is the beautiful forest area, but you can see some beautiful birds as well.

Inside the pagodas, see the beautiful art about the Lord Buddha. Then, visit the Hmong hill tribe market, selling their vegetables and fruit products instead of opium, and have lunch in the local restaurant. Then we met our new friend, the Karen man from the “Pa Ka Yor” hill tribe, who would lead us on the walk through the forest area to his village.
