Located in the Chiang Mai province of Northern Thailand, the Doi Inthanon National Park is situated at the top of Doi Inthanon, the tallest mountain of the country. The spectacular views of the surroundings, as well as the interesting hiking trails and the beautiful waterfalls found at frequent intervals, is definitely worth a visit. Called imaginatively as the “Roof of Thailand,” this park enjoys a huge number of visitors who are amazed to find the montane farms and quaint villages inside the rain forest. The cool climate of Doi Inthanon National Park is yet another factor that finds a lot of takers.
Named for the erstwhile Lanna King, Inthawichayanon, the ruler who was concerned about preserving the environment and natural resources of the forest, Doi Inthanon National Park is also famous for its unique flora of 1274 different species and a plethora of exciting wildlife including deers, boars and many beautiful birds such as the winged buzzard.
