Description
Formerly known as Doi Oi Chang, Doi Suthep National Park was renamed after a hermit who practiced meditation on these mountains hundreds of years ago. This park is highly trafficked by tourists visiting Chang Mai as it is close to Wat Phratat Doi Suthep, a very famous temple and the Chang Mai Zoo which is home to pandas. Doi Suthep-Pui features lush rainforests and a large amount of biodiversity. Visitors can expect to see over 200 bird species and the occasional Phayre’s Leaf-monkey. This park is also home to a few waterfalls which include: Montha Than Waterfall, Mae Sa Waterfall, and Huai Kaeo Waterfall (this waterfall has a legendary love story about the lady of Chang Mai). Make sure to check out the peaks Doi Pui (the tallest), Doi Suthep, and Doi Buak Ha for amazing views!
