In January we climbed Doi Langka Luang, also known as Doi Mae Tho, which lies near the junction of the [url=https://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g293917-Chiang_Mai-Vacations.html]Chiang Mai[/url], [url=https://www.travelfish.org/location/thailand/northern_thailand/chiang_rai/chiang_rai]Chiang Rai[/url] and [url=https://www.travelfish.org/location/thailand/northern_thailand/lampang/lampang]Lampang[/url] provinces, at the southern tip of the Khun Chae national park. This is the highest peak of the Khun Tan range. At 2031m above sea level, it is about the 8th highest mountain in [url=https://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g293915-Thailand-Vacations.html]Thailand[/url].
We did this hike independently in 2 days. It is not a well-known route and we did not see anyone for the whole duration. The night before we stayed at the Baan Kon Meuang Doi homestay in the village of Baan Mae Dtoon Luang. The village chief drove us to the start of the hike at "Doi Radar", near the Khun Chae national park headquarters. Our first day route took us over Doi Pha Ngom before camping right on the summit of Doi Langka Luang. Our second day route took us over Doi Langka Noi and back down to Baan Mae Dtoon Luang.
This trek could probably also be arranged through the Khun Chae national park headquarters or commercial trekking companies with a guide/porter, possibly taking longer and using the main campsite featured in the video. Personally I thought it made a perfect independent adventure for those confident to undertake it. The video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3klOcK0jhU
