I made a day trip to Doi Inthanon. The day started at 4 am when they pick me up because we were going to see the sunrise. The early wake up was worth it, the sunrise was amazing! But notice that it's very cold at 6 am at almost the top of the mountain so bring warm clothes. When the sun rises it will get warmer and you will be fine with one trousers and one shirt. We visited pagodasa and made short and long trek in the national park and the views was great! After that we went to see two big waterfalls, the other one was quite touristic but the other one wasn't. Afterall the day trip was very good experience and my guide Lin was absolutely great and friendly! :)
excellent unique tour
We had a wonderful day hiking on Doi Inthanon. Lin is a great guide and such a nice person to spend the day with. Although the mist was very heavy on the mountain so we didn't have the best views we still really enjoyed our day. Highly recommend!
