Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park

Stunning views

What we say: 3.5 stars



Northwest of town, off the 107 bypass, Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park is home to some stunning views, fascinating wildlife and Thailand's second highest peak.

The drive to the headquarters is a pleasant, well signposted trip through the countryside, leading up to some very scenic peaks. Near headquarters are a few natural hot springs, which are very popular with the locals on weekends, especially in the cold season. Camping is possible, and for those with a sturdy vehicle or the will to hire a local driver, trips to the summit are possible, though we were told it involves a somewhat arduous walk up to the very top.

A trip to the park's headquarters fits easily in a day-trip, though those who wish to explore more might consider staying the night at the campground. National park entry fee is the standard 200 baht, and songthaew rides out to the headquarters can be easily arranged in town, and shouldn't cost more than 200-300 baht for the whole truck.
