Doi Khuntan National Park

Doi Khuntan National Park is located within Lampang and Lamphun, has an area of 225 squarekilometers and an altitude of 1,272 meters. Access to the park is possible by taking Lampang – Lamphun highway and branching off at Km. 47 for 18 kms., but the easiest way is by train to Khuntan station. The Doi Khuntan area was first explored early this century when German engineers were excavating Thailand’s longest tunnel (some 1.3 kilometers) on the Bangkok – Chiang Mai railway line. The main trail climbs from Khuntan station to park headquarters and bungalows belonging to the State Railways, a missionary part and the Royal Forestry Department. Camping sites are also available ; campers must bring their own tents and the camping equipment.
