Mae Charim is a district in the most eastern part of Nan province and became famous because of the wild Wa River and the National Park Mae Charim (sometimes also written as Mae Jarim). The village refereed to as Mae Charim is actually Nong Deang and is about 40 km east of Nan town, located in the valley of the Wa River and bordering Laos. It is a rough area as part of the Luang Prabang Mountain Range with the highest peak of Doi Khun Lan (1.650m heigh), Rivers and Waterfalls. It is a very small village without much accommodation or restaurants. But since 2017 there is a 7-11! The main attractions are about 18 km out of Mae Charim village. Be aware that Mae Charim is about 40 km east of Nan town, it is not a suburb of Nan town.
