Doi Inthanon National Park, or the roof of Thailand, is a splendid mountain peak in Chiang Mai that boasts a range of superb waterfalls, magical forest scenes and a beautiful tribal village.

If one was ever to get a glimpse of heaven on earth, there is nowhere else more perfect than Thailand. This Southeast Asian country is eminent for its luscious natural attractions, from turquoise blue oceans to magnificent mountain ranges. Among those, Eat Vacation would like to highlight the charms of Doi Inthanon National Park.

Located in Chiang Mai province, Doi Inthanon looms over prolific green hills and spectacular views. With an elevation of 2,565 m, it is often known as Thailand’s roof. Eat Vacation thinks its 500 square kilometers coverage is massively impressive, though this might pose a challenge for those looking to explore the entire place. Granted, one would need days to discover all this park has to offer. Eat Vacation recommends planning and doing some research to make the most out of these acclaimed forests in northern Thai.

Dubbed as Thailand’s roof for its height, Doi Inthanon National Park in Chiang Mai, covering a massive area of almost 500 square kilometres, can post a big challenge for those wishing to discover the whole place in a limited time.

Just off the highway 108, one could find the Mae Ya waterfalls as the first stop of the journey. Drive around 30 kilometers up to find Wachirathan Waterfalls and relish the magnificent display as water cascades down the cliffside. Only 2 hours west from here, one would find the famed tribal village of Mae Chaem. Visitors could stop by overnight and wake up to rows of rain-fresh paddy fields.

Eat Vacation also ventured to the top of Doi Inthanon to witness the gate to the Himayalan Range, or Ang Ka Nature Trail. It was a bountiful old forest teeming with various native plant species and moss. Add to that a blanket of mist enshrouding the entire area, one could easily mistake the scene for an ethereal snapshot off a fantasy dream.

After a few months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Doi Inthanon National Park has reopened its doors for visitors back in August. Eat Vacation could not recommend this patch of greenery more for any nature lover. Traipsing along the dense trails and sublime waterfalls, it’s certainly impossible to not be awestruck by nature’s stellar exhibit. For those who are paying this national park a visit, pay attention to cherish the natural site properly, while leaving no trace and damage behind.
