Spend time outdoors, breathe cool fresh mountain air and unwind…
Visit the Royal Angkhang Station Project
This research project provides agricultural support to neighbouring hilltribes and develops non-indigenous crops for them to grow. Beautiful flowers and bonsai gardens are tended, alongside fruit, vegetables and herb gardens. The healthful produce of the Royal Angkhang Agricultural Station Project is available to purchase, depending on the season.
More than 1,000 species of birds frequent Doi Angkhang, many of which are now rare or endangered. A good spot to watch for them is at Mae Phur Forest Station and on the way to Angkhang Nature Resort itself. Within the resort a wide variety of birds can also be seen.
Discovering the Natural Environment
There are many viewpoints in the Doi Angkhang area. One popular spot, Kiew Lom, found between Angkhang Nature Resort and Khob Dong Village, gives a view of Fang and a haunting cloud of fog, through which the sun rises and sets. Also, the area has many natural sights, such as waterfalls and caves (Subject to weather condition)
A comfortable 3-hour drive from Chiang Mai, through some of Thailand's most spectacular scenery, Angkhang is the perfect place to unwind. Developed originally as part of the Royal Angkhang Research Station, the Angkhang Nature Resort offers 72 superior rooms and 2 suites. Each room is furnished in teakwood, decorated with local Thai fabrics and has a spacious private balcony from which to enjoy the view of the surrounding countryside. The Camellia Restaurant serves delicious Thai and western specialities using the fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs grown locally by the Royal Angkhang Agricultural Station Project.
