A short drive north of Chiang Mai, Doi Tung Mountain region offers can’t-miss experiences unique to Thailand, including:
Doi Tung Development Project and Cottage Industry Centre, a very successful non-profit organisation started by the Princess Mother to aid the local hill tribes in replacing their opium-based economy with pottery, natural fabrics, coffee and mulberry paper.
Mae Fha Luang Gardens and Palace, also known as the ‘Switzerland of Thailand’, located amidst lush tropical forests near the top of the beautiful Doi Tung mountain range.
Doi Tung Royal Villa where the Princess Mother lived while she worked with the region’s hill tribes. The Villa, built from recycled shipping containers, boasts spectacular views.
A scenic drive to another nearby mountain range passes through several hill tribe villages on the way to visit an Akha hill tribe orphanage. This is a rare opportunity to interact with these amazing children and learn about their lives. Pa Sak Tong is a proud supporter of this special group of children who look forward to exchanging cultural experiences with guests.
