Doi Inthanon National Park
The park made up of a series of mountains along the range known as Thanontongchai which runs North-South. This range is part of the great Himalaya range which originates in Nepal. The highest of the park is 2,565 meter, which is the highest point of Thailand. The park contains many mountains of different series and heights. When one view from the surrounding plains the range looks like a series of rising and falling waves. Throughout the park, different altitudes make plant and animal species diversity. From the foothills of the range, people can see the almost perpetual fog which covers the mountainís top all year around. At the top of the mountain within the fog, visitors can see the moisture and dew that the fog provides the evergreen forest.
