Situated on Doi Chang Moob, at 1,500 meters above sea level, the highest peak of the Nang Non (Reclining Woman) Range along the Thai-Myanmar border, this was once along an important opium trafficking route.
The area has now been turned into Mae Fah Luang Arboretum in the midst of pine forests, native Sorrel Himalayan Cherry trees and fragrant orchid trees. Hundreds of species of Rhododendrons from different continents are grown along with native Thai orchids, blooming in different seasons.
At the peak of Doi Chang Moob, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the mountains of the Golden Triangle, from the lush green forest of Doi Tung, to Myanmar and as far as Laos.
