Doi Suthep-Pui National Park

Ideal for an organized one day trip due to its convenient location, this national park is only a 30 minutes drive from the city of Chiang Mai. Doi Suthep and Doi Pui support a remarkable flora, with over 2, 000 flowering plant species, far more than any other area of seasonal tropical forest. The forest itself is a mix of deciduous and evergreen, with evergreen dominating at 2, 900 ft, although semi-evergreen forests fill gulleys and waterways at lower elevations. These forests are filled all year round with flowers and a profusion of exotic birds, butterflies and small mammals.

A Recent Review of this tour

Chintana is a very knowledgeable guide and bird watcher. I had a great time during this one day tour, with experience sharing and getting to know her and her husband, driving us, and Thailand in general. I found Chintana a remarkable bird watcher, her sharp sight, ability to see very small birds from afar and to identify them impressed me a lot! I learned a lot today and I look forward to the next 2 days tour we have left. Highly recommended.
