Tucked away in Wiang Kaen sub-district, some 130 kilometers from Chiang Rai Town lies Doi Pha Tang. Doi Pha Tang is a very beautiful mountain on the border between Thailand and Laos, about 25 km to the north of the more popular tourist spot Phu Chi Fa.
This peaceful and scenic 1,638 meter mountain is home to a number of ethnic groups including the Chinese Haw, the Hmong and the Yao, many of whom have largely maintained their own unique culture and way of life. If you get the chance, be sure to experience some of the local food. There are many Chinese restaurants and the roadside stands selling preserved fruits such as apricots, peaches, red cherries, and Chinese pears are not to be missed. The climate here is much cooler than the rest of the country allowing the local farmers to produce many fruits that cannot be found elsewhere in Thailand.
