Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, Waterfall & Temple Tour, Chiang Mai Thailand

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is one of the holiest Buddhist Temples in Northern Thailand. As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chiang Mai, the temple receives thousands of visitors each year. Access to the temple is via 300 steps from the carpark. If you would rather avoid the climb, then take the elevator trolley from the carpark.

Bhubing Palace was the official residence of Thailand’s Royal Family during the cold winter season. In addition, this was the place where the royal family stayed on official visits to the northern part of the country. The palace also doubles up as the royal accommodation for guests of the state from international circles.

Whilst visiting Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, stop by the waterfalls located here including Huai Rap Sadet Waterfall, Monthathan Waterfall and Dtaat Mook Waterfall.

Many people also come to the national park to go hiking or camping. Yod Doi Pui Campsite is located approximately 4kms north of Bhubing Palace and is a great place for travellers to set up camp. There are toilets, food stalls and a visitors centre which rents out mountain bikes.

So come up to Doi Suthep-Pui National Park for a great day in the outdoors, not too far of a drive from the Old City in Chiang Mai.

    • Hi there,

      You can hike to Dtaat Mook Waterfall without a guide, however it would be difficult for a 3.5 year old. The trail isn’t marked and there are many branching trails to get lost if you don’t know where you are going. The hike is about 3kms long.

      Best regards,
