  At the highest spot on the Mountain

Favorite thing: STOP 6 on DOI INTHANON NATIONAL PARK TOUR

The entire mountain is a national park (482 sq km) and Thailand?s highest peak, the 2565m Doi Inthanon is located here.

THE VIEWS FROM DOI INTHANON ARE BEST IN THE COOL DRY SEASON FROM NOVEMBER TO FEBRUARY.
January is the coldest month, and temperatures can drop to minus 8c.
I think you could expect rain, as the yearly rainfall is 2,500mm a year.

You can expect the air to be quite chilly towards the top, so take a jacket or sweater. It was cool in June, when I visited, probably the Fog & Rain didn't help.
FOR MOST OF THE YEAR, a mist, formed by the condensation of warm humid air below, hangs around the highest mountain.

Make sure you have your photo taken beside the notice "The highest spot in Thailand"

Walk some trails, and maybe take a break at the Cafe. Toilets are also located here.
