Blossoming tree marigolds have turned the slopes of Doi Hua Mae Kham egg-yolk yellow, luring tourists to Chiang Rai’s Mae Fah Luang district. The temperature on the mountain was recorded at 14 degrees on Tuesday morning, as visitors flocked to enjoy the scenic views and refreshingly chilled air.

Local businesses and stallholders have stocked up, eager to serve the seasonal influx of Thai tourists at a time when the country remains practically shut to foreign visitors.

Visitors who climb through the fields of yellow flowers to the peak of Doi Hua Mae Kham can also look down on the sea of mist that swirls around the mountain every winter season.

However, tree marigolds only bloom for a short period, so flower-lovers are advised to visit these slopes before the end of November if they want to catch the spectacular display.
