This park has the highest peak in Lamphun and Lampang provinces and used to be the Royal Thai Air Force telecommunication station but since the new radar station was built on Doi Inthanon, the station has been out of commission, and instead managed by the Department of National Park.
Many orchids are found here including ‘Fa Mui’ which flowers between October and January
Points of interest:
Do Chong peak: Best to take two full days to camp here and really explore, waking up just before dawn to take in the views.
Pha Kan: A two km walk from the peak of oi Chong birdwatchers come here regularly, but the trek can be treacherous, so best to be careful.
Pa Mae Arb: View point by km 13-26 of the Thoen-Li Road.
Mae Nga Chang Waterfall: Two km from park headquarters this is a small fall only 12 metres high and only flowing during rainy season.
Tad Pu La Waterfall: One km from park headquarters this is a small two-tiered fall which only flows after rains.
Pha Chang: Right opposite park headquarters, this is a small hillock with a reservoir with lovely views.
Various caves and waterfalls: So many across the parks which have yet to be developed but can be visited if able to do some trekking.
To camp visitors must bring their own food and supplies, or find it in Sop Prap town nearby where there are restaurants and fresh food markets in the early mornings and evenings. www.dnp.go.th
