    Maaeya Waterfall

    Nam Tok MaeYa waterfall is with 280 meters the highest waterfall of the Doi Inthanon national

    park nearChiang Mai in Thailand. This place is one of my favorites at the national park in Thailand's

    Chiang Mai province. Here you can relax and listen to the sound of the huge Mae Ya waterfall. The

    distance from the parking place is about 600 meter through the tight jungle here in north Thailand. Thesmall hiking path is easy to take.

    On the foot of the MaeYa is a small place to rest and watch the might of the nature. We were visiting

    the fall in September 2009, and we were the onliest tourists on this peaceful place near Chiangmai. The

    best way to come here is by motorbike or car because than you can take your time and stay a while on

    the Nam Tok Maeya. If you come with a tour you have mostly many people around you and less time.

    We really can recommend to come here if you traveling in north Thailand and want to see the beautiful

    nature here at Doi Inthanon in this part of Asia.

    Mae Klang Waterfall

    The Mae Klang Waterfall (Namtok Mae Klang) is the first waterfall you might encounter on the road

    going up to the top of Doi Inthanon, Thailand's highest peak. This often-photographed waterfall

    cascades in a main maybe 25-30m or so tier before casscading further downstream in several drops.

    The falls is actually on a spur road branching left from the road up to Doi Inthanon as you leave from

    Chom Thong (66km southwest of Chiang Mai). It's a pretty popular picnic spot, but like I said earlier, the

    falls here is certainly no slouch.

    (Burma), Vietnam and Thailand. They have preserved their way of life with little change for over

    thousand years.Comprising seven major tribes, KAREN, HMONG (MEO), YAO, LISU, LAHU, LAWA and AKHA, each has its

    own distinct culture, religion, language, art and colourful style of dress, these people make their homes
