Reluctant to review this place to turn it into the next tourist packed attraction but hey, good things are to be shared and credits ought to be given when deserved!

Away from the usual packed touristy bustle of Chiang Mai, this place was heavenly. The view was incredible and this was easily the best part of our Chiang Mai/ Chiang Rai/ Laos tour.

Sitting in a bamboo hut on the edge of a mountain, enjoying the silence, the chilly breeze, having a hot late lunch & just watching miles & miles of breath taking scenery - words can't describe.

Food was fantastic & very reasonably priced.

The only con was that a lot of houseflies come when the food is served so you have to keep swapping. If you don't have a fear of butterfly like my partner does, you will definitely enjoy the dozens of butterflies flocking around the flowers.

Suggest visiting late afternoon to catch breathtaking sun set.

Tip: This place is pronounced as "Mon-Jam" to the locals.

I love this place, away from the normal touristy and overcrowded attractions like elephant farms and tiger kingdom. In fact, Doi Mon Cham offers a different experience, for visitors to feel the cool breeze in Chiang Mai and for visitors to dine in the clouds, literally.

Highly recommended.

This is a delightful mountain resort and royal project providing incomes and prosperity for the Hmong people in the region.
There are spectacular mountain views, together with an excellent open-sided restaurant over looking the surrounding countryside.
You will see a wide range of herbs, vegetables and plants being cultivated for sale in the local markets, towns and the city of Chiang Mai.
The produce grown here also supplies the on-site restaurant mentioned earlier.
For the more adventurous you can also camp there with modern facilities on hand.
Artists can be observed painting the local landscapes while you enjoy the fabulous cooling, fresh air.
The Hmong children are dressed in traditional costume and will happily pose for, or with you. A small tip is customary, but never asked for.
The children's smiles are delightful and provide a great photo opportunity in addition to the spectacular views.
About 30 odd kilometres NW from Chiang Mai, on route 107, towards Chiang Dao and Fang. Turn left just be4, or in Mae Rim and go on beyond the Mae Sa elephant camp and Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens. It is signposted off on the right. This last 3 or 4 kms winds up a fairly steep twisty mountain road with large potholes and in the rainy season you need your wits about you if driving, but it is still accessible and not that far.
A must see of you want to experience some truly spectacular Thai mountain countryside and delightful hill-tribe people.
