Enjoy a full day tour starting early morning - 6:00 am
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.
Meet at the hotel lobby at 6:00 am, drive up to the back side of the mountain where we will spend time bird watching; enjoy the sound and smell of the forest. Different altitude will find different species of birds. Time for lunch.
Examples of common finds at this park include the Bar-winged Flycatcher-shrike, the Long-tailed and Scarlet Minivets, the Golden-fronted and Orange-bellied Leafbirds, the Chestnut-Fronted Shrike-babbler etc.

Our second tour day with Chintana was a highlight as we went to a Bird watching tour in the mountains very early. Chintana knows so much about the nature of Thailand and we enjoyed it a lot. We also went to a waterfall, a small village were locals live and a temple in the mountains. Great day!
