  Entrance to National Park

Doi Inthanon National Park is in the heart of the jungle of northern Thailand. Here many hilltribe villages dwell, as well as all of northern Thailand's flora and fauna. Many good trekking companies will take you deep into Doi Inthanon National Park to see more authentic hilltribe villages (Hmong and Karen), however due to the high levels of tourist many of the villages have been "more westernized".
Doi Inthanon National Park is also home to Chiang Mai's mountains and waterfalls. Mount Doi Inthanon is located here and is the highest mountain in Thailand (2565 meters). The Mae Ping River also runs through the National Park, providing a waterway and lush green surroundings.

To get here you need entrance passes (normally you have to be with a trekking company see www.3rdeyetravel.com). (Along Highway 107
