Doi Inthanon National Park is a 1,005 square kilometre area which includes Thailand's highest mountain and areas of dense virgin rain forest. At the foot of the mountain you find the lovely Mae Klang Falls, Chiang Mai's most photographed waterfall.
It is home to many endemic species of birds, plants, and insects, and it is a very important wintering ground for migrating birds.
It also supports thirty-one hilltribe villages, many government agencies, and numerous royal projects.
Located at the summit is a shrine to Chao Inthanon, a former prince of Chiang Mai.
Two remarkable chedi recently built at Km. 41 to honour their Majesties King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit show modernistic interpretations of traditional Buddhist themes.
