Enjoy a multi-day birdwatching tour


Doi Ankhang is a mountain belonging to the Himalayan foothill range, located at the Myanmar (Burmese) border. The highest point is 1, 928 metres. Although chiefly deforested, this is still one of Northern Thailand's most prominent bird watching areas, due to more and more rare bird species being in residence, as well as being a popular resting point for numerous migratory birds. Examples of rare and beautiful birds inhabiting this area include the Spot-breasted Parrotbill and the Red-faced Liocichla. A highly recommend site to find the more rare bird species is the picturesque area named Heaven Valley. It is not so uncommon to spot the Red-tailed Laughing Thrush here.
