Description
Doi Inthanon- Also known as "The Roof of Thailand" is located at the Doi Inthanon National Park that covers an area of 482 km in Chiang Mai province north of Thailand. The park is part of the Himalayan mountain range, elevation ranges between 800 and 2565 meters with the highest peak at Doi Inthanon, which is the highest mountain in Thailand. Due to the high altitude, the park has high humidity and cold weather all year round. The main attractions of the park are the summit of Doi Inthanon for its spectacular views of early morning, several waterfalls, few trails and the two chedis (stupas) dedicated to the king and queens 60th birthday anniversaries. Most of the waterfalls within the park have relatively good flow of water all year round but the best season for water flow is during the rainy season from May to November. One of seasonal attractions of the park is the blossoms of Siamese sakura flowers covering trees in pink during late January and February.  Doi Inthanon is named in honor of the King Inthawichayanon, one of the last Kings of Chiang Mai, who was concerned about the forests in the northern Thailand and wanted to preserve it. After his death his remains was placed in the park and the forest was renamed to Doi Inthanon.
 
Wachirathan and Siritarn Waterfall are the two major waterfalls in Doi Inthanon National Park. They are the most impressive and powerful waterfalls, falling about 60-80 m, also wide, with many beautiful segments and tiers. There are plenty of walkways to experience the waterfalls. Given the ease of access, these beloved of waterfalls are a popular tourist attraction. 
The Karen White Village contains the tribe people call the Karen who occupies the western part of Northern Thailand, in particular on the ranges west and south of Doi Inthanon. The Karens live in villages of around 25 houses raised on stilts. Married daughters and their families may live in the same house. The ladies who are not married wear white until they are married. That is why they are known as the Karen White Village. Their cloth is hand-woven on back-strap looms predominantly red with white, blue or brown vertical stripes and the stitching is clear and decorative. The men may wear simple forms of this material in a sleeveless tunic or northern Thai clothing, while the women wear more elaborate styles on their sarongs. The women’s blouses are made of dark homespun cotton with horizontal embroidered patterns decorated with seeds woven onto the lower half. The Karen is famous for their use of beads for ornamentation so there will be plenty for visitors to purchase. Visiting the Karen Village will be one of the most exotic experiences you will ever have. 
 
The Hmong market consists of shabby strip of shops selling exotic gifts and trinkets. The Hmong are a hill people of Southwest China and Northern Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar (Burma). The Hmong are relative newcomers to Thailand as they've fled political instability and war in the neighboring countries. They are famed for their beautiful handmade clothes, and Hmong Lane is the best place in Chiang Mai to buy the hand-embroidered shirts, pants, skirts, bags, and quilts. 
 
Napamaytanidol Chedi and Phra Mahatat Napaphon Bhumisiri are two giant soaring monuments erected to honor the Kings and Queens of the past that is surrounded by intricate sculptures, and beautiful semi-European inspired gardens. The interior of the temples contain pain-staking ornate rock carvings that decorate entire walls. They Chedis or Stupas are also known as the “Royal Twin Pagodas”. Many visitors say that one of the best parts about it is the beautiful garden that surrounds it.​

저렴한 도이인타논 투어

가격 저렴, 친절도 굿, 디테일한 가이드는 아니었던 것 같습니다.
점심식사 하러 갔던 곳도 그냥저냥.
