A good place to relax. I've been here a couple times. We went camping and it was cheaper to bring your own stuff. There's a really nice park ranger that takes care of the camping site, but some of the other ones were a bit...More
It’s unbelievable how every national place of Thailand had become somewhat of their income they turn somthing natural and beautiful place into somthing profitable I am not stingy I don’t mind paying but it’s really frustrating that foreigners have to pay 10x times more then...More
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
Unique national park with hot spring and cold water stand side by side. You can enjoy soaking in hot water while sightseeing greenery view around you, or just walk away in the cold water and see river fishes marching around you, or do them both!...More

The 70km drive to Chae Son National Park is over a wide concrete highway. It is a fabulous spot with very green fields, hot springs, waterfalls and walks. I only had time for a short stay but next time I will stay overnight in one...More
Stayed 2 nights. Nice walk to main waterfall and bathing in open hot spring.
Official restaurant food poor cooking and expensive.
For eating and snacks go to the independant stalls behind the HQ offices.
Best menu from lady next to OTOP shop.
The main attraction here is the hot springs. Soak in a private room (tiled tub) was 50B, towel rental 20B. There is a snack stand selling basic snacks and good coffee. The park itself would be a good spot for a picnic - bring a...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

You may drive the road number 11 from Chiang Mai to Lampang. And there take the road number 1035 to Chae Hom, drive by Chae Hom a few kilometers and turn into the road 1287 to Chae Son, and by the policebox turn into road 1252. The trip by the main road uses the same amount of time as the road across the mountain, but it is safer, especially during the rain season. The entrance fee to the national park is the same as all the national parks in Thailand . 400 THB per adult foreigner, 200 THB per child foreigner, 40 THB per Thai adult, and 20 THB per Thai child. Some parks do charge extra for car, we have not been charged for the car the last few years in Chae Son.

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.
