The second day, in the early morning, went to Doi Inthanon National Park by rental motorcycle and planned to spend all day.
It takes an hour and a half to get to Doi Inthanon from Chiang Mai downtown.
The distance between the two places is approximately 105km.
Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand, part of the Himalayan mountain range. At an elevation of 2.565m (8,415ft) above the sea level. Also known as “The roof of Thailand”. If you are in Chaing Mai you must-visit to Doi Inthanon!
At highest point
The first photo is of me with the Mongolian flag. Might be Mongolians did not come here. In the second photo, the temperature is 12 °C on October 24. Actually, I felt cool hehe. Little regretted to wear a short.
The climate is typically tropical and fairly cool on the summit. In the winter, the average temperature is 6 °C in January and temperatures can sometimes drop below 0 °C.
I almost alone wear a short hehe. I did not think cold like this. But you know, I am from Mongolia 🙂 (actually, Mongolian winter same as Russia).
Then I ate hot Thai instant noodles (MAMA) hehe.
Then trekked through Pha Dok Siew Nature Trail. The Karen people (ethnolinguistic group of Sino-Tibetan language-speaking peoples) of the village manage the trail and also work as guides.
One local guide trekked with us for safety reasons.. 🙂 Price is 200 baht per group.
The Pha Dok Siew Nature Trail is one of the two nature trails in Doi Inthanon National Park. So beautiful nature!
Pha Dok Siew Waterfall
The trail ends in the tribe village where a cup of coffee is waiting for you. Arabica coffee grows in the forest.
Organic products of the village. I bought honey here.
Tomorrow, I’ll write about Day 3. If you did not see Travel Diary of Chiang Mai | Day 1 click here
