During the summer holidays in april 2002, we drove up to Chiang Mai. One of the places we visited was the highest mountain in Thailand.
 
During the summer holidays in 2002, I went to Doi Inthanon National Park to go to the highest spot in Thailand. Picture on the right is a view that I took from the car's window while I was on the way up.
 
Picture on the right shows the mark for the highest spot in Thailand. It is 2565.3341 metres high from sea level.
 
There weren't that many people at the top. It was quite cold too compared to Chiang Mai. It was about 22 Celsius. Everyone bought hot coffee to keep themselves warm. I bought some too.
On the mountainside there are two chedis for the King and the Queen. There is also a very colourful and beautiful flower garden.
 
These two pictures above show the waterfall named "Mae Klang" in this national park. In the picture on the right, I am washing my face with the pretty cold water from the waterfall.
 
There are lots of people here. They are having a picnic and watching their kids playing in the water.
