Pha Hom Pok: the Blanketed Mountain

 

With stunning scenery of the “sea of fog”, as well as scattering hot springs and geysers, Doi Pha Hom Pok in the Fang District is a hidden gem in Chiang Mai.

The breathtaking view from the peak of Doi Pha Hom Pok never disappoints anyone. Stand on the summit and in front of you will be a panoramic scenery.  White foam of morning fog fills up the valley as a breeze slowly blows it above lush forest.

The name Doi Pha Hom Pok means ‘the blanketed mountain’ and refers to the dense forest that covers the higher elevations of the park. Cool weather all year round, morning mist, and seasonal rains fill the forest with mosses, ferns, and lichens.

Pitch your tents at the highest campsite, at 1,924 meters above sea level, and wake up to see the breathtaking, foggy valley.

The scenic fog in the morning and the colorful sunset in the evening keep nature lovers coming to the national park endlessly. With over 500 square kilometers of rugged mountains and lush forest, Doi Pha Hom Pok is characterized by two geographical features. Doi Pha Hom Pok is the second highest peak in Thailand. It is peacefully located near the border between Thailand and Myanmar at 2,285 meters above sea level. In addition to the picturesque landscape, the park offers extensive hot springs and geysers around the headquarters and visitor center.

Fang geyser is the highest in the country. Every 30 minutes like a clockwork, it erupts over more than 40 meters high, which lasts for around nine minutes each time. What a unique natural spectacle

Refresh yourself in the hot spring and relax amidst the scenic wilderness. You will definitely enjoy the peaceful surroundings in Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park.

 

How to get there:  Doi Pha Hom Pok National Park is located in Fang District of Chiang Mai, which is 175 kilometers from Chiang Mai city accessible via highway 107.
