Went solo on a motorbike. Great scenery and challenging road. As usual, weather deteriorated half way up the mountain (four tries).

really recommended, even in rainy season when visibility is not good. at summit area - amazing nature trail which gives u the feeling of walking in a ferry tale. not many animals (we just birds and genie fowl ) but the landscape is great. also visit the falls.

Easy drive from Chiang Mai allow 2.5 hours. You have to pay to get into the National Park and pay again to enter the temple area. Two modern temples on Thailand's highest mountain with views of distant Burma. Set in well maintained flower garden. Toilet facilities at the top and small shop/cafe serving drinks and food - I would suggest... More

Ok. There is one peak for tourists and another peak for the adventurous. The usual route is up to the weather station. It's the peak. But it's easily done with a vehicle on a road. Straight drive up. Then there's the trek. If you're a novice trekker, I'd suggest you leave this one out. Doesn't help if you smoke or... More

We did this tour as a full day tour. I would recommend to only do this in high season. In low season, it is very cold up there and we couldn't see any of the views due to the bad weather which ruined it a little. However, the tour itself was well organised and very interesting.

The entire drive from Chiang Mai to the top of Doi Inthanon is a must see. Try to go up on one side and get down on the opposite. The landscaping varies a lot from one side to the other. Beautiful.

I booked the usual day tour with Bon Voyage Thailand tour operator. For no extra charge they picked me up at the house where I was staying in Chiang Mai. Although the fact that they charged less than the other identical tours I'd researched online worried me a bit, the guide, Pati, was extremely knowledgable and spoke perfect English (she... More

Whilst staying in Chiang Mai we decided to rent a car for the day and venture into the Doi Inthanon National Park and I am very pleased we took the time. The surroundings are beautiful from flooded paddy fields at the bottom to lovely lush wooded areas all the way to the peak. During our drive we stopped at the... More

We visited Doi Inthananon as part of a tour and it was very interesting. Unfortunately it rained and so it was very cold at the top, but it's pretty cool to be at the highest point in Thailand! We did a nature walk, which was really interesting, as well as visiting a market, a tribal village and a waterfall. At... More

With an altitude of 2500 m above sea level, the peak of Doi Inthananon is a cool place to go. Rain forests, falls, animals and temples make the mountain a good choice for a day trip to refresh yourself from the hot weather, Just to let everyone know, foreigners get charged 200 baht for enter.
