Doi Kat Phee

Doi Kat Phee is the peak of one of the highest mountains in Doi Kat Phee National Park, along with two other mountains, Doi Chaang and Doi Wawee, which surround a 10 square kilometer land. Doi Kat Phee has just been well-known in recent years and is gradually becoming a tourist destination when many visitors camp here to watch the sunrise.

In Thai, Doi means hill, Kat means market and Phee is the ghost. Therefore the meaning of Doi Kat Phee’s name is the hill of souls. Located 52km north of Rai Rai, Doi Kat Phee is mainly mountainous terrain, so it takes more than 3 hours to get here by car.

Coming to Doi Kat Pee, you will be immersed in beautiful natural landscapes and canals and places for excellent viewing angles. Especially, from November to January is the ideal time for you to come here when the air is cool and the sun rises in the midst of fog in the early morning.

Phu Lang Ka, Phayao

Perhaps Phayao is one of the least well-known provinces in Thailand. Despite the fact that Thai people say that there is nothing here, Phayao will bring tourists amazing experiences.

You will only see the stunning beauty of Phayao when you are adventurous. It would be inadequate if we don’t mention Phu Lang Ka- an area located at the mountainous Pong district, Phayao Province.

Phu Lang Ka is situated on the slopes looking down to the valley with some limestone cliffs, just like the beautiful limestone mountains of Krabi, Vang Vieng and Halong Bay. Phu Lang Ka is far from the sea, so the breath of mountainous life will surround you every moment.

If you want to visit the forest, explore the “foggy islands” or “misty seas” in valleys in the early morning or you can also climb to the mountains like Doi Hua Ling, Doi Phu Lang and Doi Phu Nom. Once you stand in these mountains, you will be able to see the sunrise and the most beautiful sunsets as well.

Doi LoungChiang Dao, Chiang Mai

Like Doi Kat Phee, Doi Loung Chiang Dao had been a less-well-known area. Set the foot of a huge limestone mountain, Chiang Dao is an ideal place to escape the bustle of Chiang Mai.

The road to Doi Chiang Dao is quite craggy, and that is probably why people choose this place less. Visitors must have good health and strong psychology to conquer the high land 2,225m above sea level. However, you will see the fairytale scene of this place when reaching there.

Baan Ra Beang Doa is one of the best hotels in Chiang Dao. Although it’s not luxury, this hotel will bring you the experiences when living in the mountainous area. From the balcony, you can see the beautiful views outside.

Huay Nam Dang, Mae Hong Son

Huay Nam Dang is not as famous as Pai. However, this is the most beautiful foggy place in Thailand. Huay Nam Dang is located on the top hill of a mountain in Chiang Dao. The temperature here can go down to minus 10 degrees Celsius from October to December with fog everywhere like raising small towns bubbling in the middle of the sea of fog.

Doi Hau Singh, Om Koi, Chiang Mai

Doi Hau Singh is the peak of Doi Chong Mon – the highest hill in Om Koi Wild Reservation Zone. Doi Hau Singh is in Om Goi – the most secluded district of Chiang Mai. This place seems to be isolated from the outside world, with only few villages scattered among the majestic hills. The shape of one of the hills looks like a lion’s head, so this place is called the Lion Hill. When standing on the top of the lion’s head, you can see the horizon.
Doi Hau Singh is a fairytale land with green grasslands and rare goats. On the majestic mountains, you will suddenly see red and white roses of azaleas. Forests and plains are home to many animals and rare birds.
