The beautiful road up to Doi Tung is itself the trip worthwhile. Up here in the
northern mountains the King's Mother started a project to educate the Mountain
people in modern agriculture; fruit and tea plantations and gardening.
A healthy alternative to get rid of the ill-reputed heroin business which 50 years
ago was the main industry in the area. The project became a 100 % success.
She also ensured that the Mountain people got Thai Rights.
At 1400 meters altitude, we will visit Mae Fah Luang Garden, Thailand’s most
spectacular garden ever. We will also attend a guided tour in the King’s Mother's cottage,
Royal Villa, located in the Garden. Lunch in the mountain area is included.
Back home: We will be back in Chiang Rai around 15:00 pm
Cost: 2,500 Bath. Fees for visiting Doi Tung Royal Villa
and the Garden, as well as transfer and lunch,are all included in the price.
Don’t forget: Bring good shoes; we will walk a couple of kilometers.
Also don’t forget sun protection and perhaps an umbrella.
