Doi Tung Mountain is located very near the border between Thailand and Myanmar in Chiang Rai Province. The mountain has a wonderful history of transformation. The mountain was used for the growing of poppies in the middle of this century when the mountain was deforested to make way for fields of poppies to support of the drug trade at that time.
Then through the efforts of the royal family and intervention of the King of Thailand, the mountain was transformed to a garden paradise, supporting amazing gardens and orchards of tasty fruit trees and coffee. The story of this huge achievement is being told in the Hall of Inspiration, a building dedicated to the remeberance of this amazing transformation. Today, several ethnic communities live on the mountain in harmony helping to provide it’s visitors a botanical garden paradise to enjoy.
