The beauty of Chiang Mai’s Doi Inthanon National Park will be available to travellers again from August 1 after being closed since Covid-19 hit Thailand early this year.

Kitsiam Khongsatri, who oversees the national park, said on Monday (July 27) that preparations had been made in line with Covid-19 guidelines.

Visitors will first need to register via the QueQ smart phone application, which will help limit the number of arrivals at just 1,250, and everybody will be screened for fever before they enter.

The temperature on Doi Inthanon peak is normally about 11 degrees Celsius and allows visitors to drown in a sea of fog. However, the path up to the peak can be treacherous during the rainy season and visitors are advised to be careful.
