About Mae Charim National Park in Nan province

Mae Charim National Park was established in 1961 and is at one of the "off the beaten track corners" of Nan province, with the Wa River and wild mountains as main attraction. One of the things to do here is wild water rafting on the Wa River. Doi Kun Lan is the highest mountain within the park, with a height of about 1.500m above sea-level. Besides wild water rafting it is a great area for hiking but better ask the park rangers! Be aware there are not much accommodation or restaurants nearby. For about the wild water rafting see Wild Water Rafting in the Wa River. Mae Charim National Park is 56 km south-west of Nan town, about 18 km south of Mae Charim.
