The Summit- Highest Point in Thailand

The Summit- Highest Point in Thailand at Doi Inthanon National Park

The Summit- Highest Point in ThailandHi Everyone!

It's day three of my blog marathon and I hope you have already read my previous blog posts.

So, our next stop after waterfalls was the highest point of  Thailand (Doi Inthanon: The Summit at 2,565 meters above from the sea level). It is in Chom Thong District, Chiang Mai Province and is known to be the ideal place to get away from the hectic cities in Thailand. It is also known as Doi Luang ('big mountain'). The name Doi Inthanon was given in honour of King Inthawichayanon, one of the last kings of Chiang Mai, who was concerned about the forests in the north and tried to preserve them. He ordered that after his death his remains be interred at Doi Luang, which was then renamed in his honor.

Basically, there isn’t much to see aside from some interesting wooden trails that will take you to a shrine that holds the ashes of King Inthanon. It only requires a short walk from the parking lot.We took some pictures and then we headed down to the Doi Inthanon Park Exhibition Center. When we reached down to exhibition hall, there were a lot pictures of maps and all the information about Doi Inthanon.

Doi Inthanon is a great place to experience the nature of Thailand, away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. The weather was uniquely cold there. Beautiful views all around Doi Inthanon National Park just makes it a must-see place in Chaingmai.  It indeed, was a great short trip to the highest peak mountain of Thailand. We are so glad we made it to Doi Inthanon Natinal Park!
