Mae Ngat Dam & Reservoir : Chiang Mai, Thailand

The Mae Ngat Somboon Chon Dam is a multi-purpose hydroelectric dam in the Mae Taeng District of Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. It impounds the Mae Ngat River, a tributary of the Ping River. The dam is located at the western side of Si Lanna National Park.

A 25minute drive out of Chiang Mai lies one of the best kept secrets in Chiang Mai. The Mae Ngat Dam in Chiang Mai and the Mae Ngat Dam House boats really should be one of the top destinations in Northern Thailand but it’s just not as popular as it has the potential to be.

The Mae Ngat Dam has some really cool things to do but first when you get their you’ll have to get a long tail boat out to the house boats.

Travelling on the long-tail boat you get to see the rolling hills full of trees and the random house boats along the Mae Ngat dam. The water looks a little green but it pretty clean. There are hundreds of these boat houses lined up along the edge of the hills.
