Doi Inthanon National Park

Private Tour | Doi Inthanon & Doi Suthep, 2 days

Doi Inthanon and Doi Suthep National Parks are two of the most popular parks north of Thailand.

Doi Inthanon is known as "The Roof of Thailand", it is the highest point in Thailand at 2,565 meters above sea level. The national park is home to many attractions and a popular destination for birders. The park has a great diversity of forest types throughout different altitudes, at the higher altitudes the forests are humid all year round.

Doi Suthep National Park has a similar habitat, but better known for its longer trails, Karen villages and the iconic Doi Suthep Temple with a naga stairway.

While Doi Inthanon National Park is more popular for its various types of attractions, Doi Suthep is more popular for its long trails and temple visiting.

What?

A private day-tour in Doi Inthanon National Park includes hiking, visiting the highest point in Thailand, Two Chedis, waterfalls and Hmong hill tribe market. The transfer will be with a SUV or minivan, both options spacious and comfortable and with a/c, we use only relatively new cars.

Doi Inthanon has only two official trails which can be walked in around 1.5 to 2 hours (each) of which one is closed during the rainy seasons but there is also a shorter trail near the summit, less than a kilometer long.

While there will be fewer and shorter trail options in Doi Inthanon National Park, Doi Suthep will give the opportunity to walk longer trails of various difficulty levels. If less hiking is required, our guide can adapt the itinerary for your needs by visiting more attractions.
