This place is beautiful! The hot springs are not great for bathing as they're so hot the locals come with a basket of eggs to boil them in the springs. However there is a river that meets the hot springs making it a great place...More

This national park consists of both natural hot spring and waterfall in the area. There is private "onsen" room to spend with your family. A hot tub is in-room with a little pay. It is fun & relaxing and good experience.

I had the greatest time bathing in my own private bathtub with truly warm hot spring water. I strolled around the paths through hot springs, and boiled eggs for snacks. Not so many tourists perhaps because it's about 50 miles north of Lampang city center....More

Hi Elen. I had a hire car as this is a remote area about 1hr north of Lampang. I think the only other way is via taxi.

Chiang Mai, loop heading north and east (0 Replies)
Hi We have three weeks with our own car to do this loop- CM, Chiang Dao, Phrao, Phayao,Nan, Phrae. We would also like to include the Chae Son National Park area. Are the roads suitable for a normal car both from Phrae to the NP and then back to CM??? Also are all these places worth seeing or should we skip any? Many thanks!

Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn (4 Replies)
Hi, Will be in Chiang Mai in June, and would really like to go see Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn, which is south of Chae Son National Park. Has anyone made the journey to his wat on the mountain, and if so, is it doable for a one day trip with a driver? Thanks.

Been there and yes it is doable in one day. It is a bit of a roundabout route to get there. I had friend here driving and did this temple then onto Lampang to visit a couple of temples there. Ended up being quite a long day with a lot of driving. If you aee on a restricted time limit I would probably skip it as amazing as it is.
Chae Son National park from Chiang Mai (6 Replies)
We will be travelling for 3 weeks with our own car and want to do the loop CM, Chiang Dao, Phrao, Nan and head back to CM via Chae Son. Are the roads good enough for a normal car to head from the Chae Son national Park to CM over the mountains rather than needing to go via Lampang? Are there other places that we should consider visiting? Thanks

That is a very small one lane concrete road and steep in a few places. You have to know what you do when driving there. The NP guys will probably let you pass if they understand what you are trying to do, you can also drive around the NH headquarter ticket booth if they want you to pay.
