Kew Mae Pan Nature Trail
Kew Mae Pan Nature Trail is a must-do hiking and trekking trail not to be missed by nature lovers. It is located inside the area of Doi Inthanon National Park, home to Thailand’s highest peak.
Visitors to the National Park should include visiting this trail on their itinerary because the reward of hiking this short distance (2.78km) natural walk could be the most beautiful panoramic view you will ever see in Thailand.
This green highly-rated trail takes about 2-3 hours to finished and suitable for beginner level hikers. However, it is not recommended for people who cannot climb stairs because some trail parts require uphill hiking.
A lovely trek up - Kew Mae Pan trail was very nice! Both guides, from the local one, and from the tour operator were attentive. Just minus was that the visit to the Karen tribe, was not what was expected.
Good trip including stop at the nice waterfall, cup of coffee at the local community, visit the highest peak of Thailand together with the King's and Queen's pagodas and the 2-hr trek at Kew Mae Pan Trail to see the 'best view in Thailand'. If it's the best - hard to judge - as it was cloudy and you could see really nothing up there (what turned out to be typical). The stop at the viewing point could have been longer, though, to get a chance to see anything as clouds were moving quickly. After the trek there was a really nice lunch served at the local market where we had opportunity to shop some dried fruit at a good price.
