1. From Chiang Mai: Doi Inthanon National Park Hiking Tour
Travel deep into the National Park stopping off at some of the most scenic waterfalls in the region on this one-day Doi Inthanon hiking tour. Experience a gentle 4km hike along a nature trail and learn about the flora and fauna along the way and enjoy the highest point in Thailand. The tour begins with a visit to the summit of Doi Inthanon – the highest spot in Thailand and an area rich in biodiversity and unique flora and fauna. Walk along a short hiking trail on the summit before heading to the start of the main hike. A local guide will take you through a pine restoration area, deep into a wooded valley, and into farmland before reaching the Karen hill tribe village, which was founded 150 years ago. You will get the chance to cool off in a refreshing natural swimming pool along the trail and get the chance to spot snakes, lizards, and if you’re very lucky one of the resident gibbons! Upon reaching the village you will enjoy a local lunch and try a free coffee that is grown in the region. One final waterfall awaits on the way back to the city, beautiful all year round, and caps off a fun sightseeing day.
